The moon, as seen from my yard 600mm + 1.4x, not merely 600mm. Taken before bedtime, so it is still low in the Eastern sky. I used a tripod and a RRS full gimbal, thumb on the button. This is shrunk down a lot to fit into DPC.

Nice finish, but I think it should have done a little better.

i've spent 5 minutes looking at the detail and features on the surface. An expert could probably tell whereabouts you were on the earth from the view you have of the moon. good luck

The best of it's kind. There are several shots that are quite similar in this challenge, but yours shows a level of detail not seen in the others. Exposure is spot on as well..
