    Had a crack at it tonight at 600mm.. very hard to get a decent sharp shot due to vibrations from my tripod and the combination of very high iso + slow shutter speed..still good fun!
    Cheers, Troy

    Was ready to go, and the clouds wouldn't go.

    I had very clear skies here where I live and managed to get some shots, I posted one in the Night/Astro forum.

    I wish I had the reach of 600mm, I only had my kit lens at 250mm, but I'm happy with the photos I was able to get with it.

    Constructive Critique of my work is highly valued so have at it !

    There ought to be a recall on all photo editing software to remove the vignette function.

    I needed to get to higher ground - I couldnt see the moon until it was over. I have seen some good shots already taken by other photographers though!

    You were unlucky with the cloud Brad, but you got a nice shot of the Opera House.

    There is a solar eclipse this tuesday coming but being a daylight one you really need to be prepared with a solar filter, pointing your camera directly at the sun spells bad news.. there is also another full lunar in october and another solar one to follow that.

    I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it. ~Author Unknown
