This is so not going to do well

This entry is doing much better than I expected.

This shot was taken at 15mm. I pointed the camera at the eye piece of a telescope and was able to get pretty good focus on the moon.

Quality moon shot. What makes it stand out is not just the PP but this time it is not the entire moon that's visible but "cropped" into the frame. DOF seems extremely shallow so either you were on the ISS, you have a 2000mm f/4 on APS-C (3000/3200mm equivalent) or you did some creative blurring on an entirely in focus moon :) 9.

Commenting only: Great moon shot. Curious about the large softer area in between two sharper areas...I assume that's atmospheric.
