I used a Voightlander adapter to mount a Sigma 800mm and 2x converter on my GF1 for a 35mm equivalent focal length of 3200mm. The moon was moving very fast across the image screen and my fingers were so numb, I could hardly focus - in fact I had to quit way before I was satisfied. f/11, 1/100, ISO 1000. ACR, cleaned up with Noise Ninja and sharpened.
