    Very nice.

    The full fun shot is very clear, but I am also digging the rissing moon shot.

    I tried Manual Focus Assist on a few and got sharper results. That feature makes so much magnification that almost breathing on the tripod makes it jittery...but finally managed to get it into pretty sharp focus.
    I still find it incredible that I can get a shot of the moon that sharp while its 238,000 miles away traveling at 2300 mph.
