The Moon - actual size!

The Moon - actual size!, originally uploaded by Shiny Things.

Tonight’s waxing crescent moon, low in the sky over Singapore - shot with a 300mm telephoto lens strapped to a 2x teleconverter, for an effective focal length of 600mm (or 960mm(!) in 1.6-crop-factor-land).

Try viewing it full-size for added oomph.

Update: OK, here’s a 100%-zoomed crop. This is actual size… but you still want to hit that link up there and see the whole thing.
