your moon is beautiful. It looks, as if big waterdrops have been falling on sand with all the "spots" on it. Sharpness is so excellent.
Why do you make a break, what a pity.
Hope, you come back soon, thanks for all the marvelous shots, bye bye

I am very impressed with this shot of the moon, and believe it to be the best one on TN that I have seen.
I will sit and study it for a long time, one day, when I need the diversion.
Great contribution to this site and my wish list.
Thank you so much.
I hope that you will return soon, you will be missed.

EXCELLENT MOONSCAPE STEPHEN!
Focus and exposure are TOP GUN. Not much to say about composition except the frame looks very good.
What lens or scope did you use? Is f/8 the indicated exposure or is it the effective exposure? I know mirror lens and telescope indicated outdiamter as opening and neglect light lost due to center mirror.
Great picutre and TFS.

Stephen, we do hope you to come back as soon as possible.
As for the picture, it's really great.
I confess I'm curious about the lens you used...

Félicitation pour cette Lune, belle définition et bonne exposition. Qu'as-tu utilisé comme optique? En tout cas le numérique à un sacré avantage sur l'argentique dans ce genre de prise de vue. Bravo!

This is a great shot. Such close details. I have had no sucess with this type of shot yet. I get a big white blob! I hope you will be back in the very near future. I do enjoy your work. Take care and have a wonderful Christmas.

I was just telling Greg (Red45) that I love shots of the moon. :) This is a great picture. Very sharp and very nice. Too bad you are leaving TN, but I understand where you're coming from. Well done & TFS!

Stunning shot Stephen,
The details are awesome and very sharp. Excellent frame and presentation.
It's a shame this will be your last post for a while. I always enjoy viewing your fantastic landscapes of Ireland.
I wish you a very merry Christmas a happy New Year my friend.
I look forward to your return.
