karohemd: self portrait (photo 85mm)
On my way from work I noticed how clear the sky was and you could see the various shades of the full moon very clearly so when I got home I grabbed camera, lenses and tripod (which took a while as various pieces were in different places) and went into the garden. I tried to cheat the automatic lights but failed so there was a bit too much ambient light for my liking but I think it was OK regardless.
Having only 400mm (the Sigma 70-200mm plus x2 teleconverter) to work with was rather restricting so the shot below is a tight crop. At least the D700 has enough resolution to still make it work.

Mars is in opposition this evening and it was just visible as a reddish spot but I failed utterly to get a good picture of it. The only one I have is in the same frame as the moon but in that it only came out as a spot.
