I took this moon shot in an attempt to see how long a focal length I could reach with old lenses in my closet. By combining one 300mm/F4 Pentax prime lens wtih two 2X teleconverters (one Konica Hexanon and the other 7-element Tokina), I got 35mm equivalent FL as long as 2,400mm on an Olympus E500! Diameter of the moon in the picture was about 75% of the frame height.
