Hello George,
One of the finest shots of the moon that I've seen here on TN. Very detailed and showing the moons features in perfect clarity and well balanced light. I really like the way the entire moons sphere is so easily visible even on the dark side. Your 150-600MM lens did an awesome job for you!!

Indeed Our moon of Our planet
What a great POV by great details and lights well done GEORGE VELTCHEV

Hello, WOW!!! So few quality images taken of the moon that yours really stands out. You have a good telephoto lens, obviously. F/8 did the job of capturing great detail on the surface of the moon. I have to add your image to my favorites.
Splendid job,

Hi George,
a perfect shot of the moon - like very much.

Hi George, I have never known how our moon would look like this if I do not come across this picture. Impressive shot of this moon with extraordinary details. Nice black around to frame this partial moon to enhance the dynamic of this image. Thank for sharing
