This is indeed a very very big focal length and you handled superbly!
I really like you giving us the entire techinical spec. of this photo...this way we can once more learn from your experiments.
Also, it's true, this is the first time we see the moon from the Odessan POV :)... and it's looks very beautiful from there!
I really love seeing all those craters and shapes on its surface and due to your long zoom and your very precise focusing, they are so nicely visible.
Overall: wonderful work!
Bravo and TFS

Nice work here! You have really good detail and tones in this shot. Excellent detail in the craters to even show the shadows in them. Excellent camera work my friend!
Great moon! It's so big... Do you see lunatics there? Maybe they hide somewhere in craters... or on the back side on the moon...

MAN you are good, Alexei.
All the way from Russia you have photographed "my" ugly face to show to the TN world. Ha, ha, ha.
What can I say???
YOU ARE THE MICHAEL ANGELO OF OUR HOBBY.
Congratulations and thank you so very much for sharing this GREAT PIECE OF IMAGERY.

Wow....superb. Recently there are news of Aliens residing on Moon and that they were already there when man landed and warned us to not come there again. That is the reason given for no more Moon expeditions in all these 30+ years. Hence don't plan to go there, instead click these fabulous shots from your 'Odessa' POV and let all the TNers enjoy. This extreme series has been an education for me on all counts. Simply outstanding. Kudos.

thanks for sharing

Alexei, this is the largest and the sharpest image of the moon that has ever been displayed on TN. And it is amazing.
I can see the craters on the surface of the moon as if I am hovering over it in a spacecraft. It is that sharply realistic.
The power of 800mm and your finesse as a photo artist to use it so effectively are strongly manifest in this remarkable picture of a heavenly body.
Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Thanks for another great shot,
- mrcrow (3008)
- [2007-10-07 8:08]
i have tried these with no success
your shot is pin sharp and with a good set of detail
your exposure details show that the moon despite being seen at night required 'daylight' settings to get the highlights exposed correctly

Your Odessan nights seem to be magical! What a shot! I'm amazed by the clearness of the details and the fine colour-variations on the surface of the moon. And not to forget the subtle play of shadow and light. Yes, the moon still makes people dream. Thank you Alexei.

the moon certainly is a perfect target to demonstrate the difference resulting from a different person's point of view when looking at the same thing.
In a simple, strict and clear way and by the clever handling of very good equipment - and not to forget your well written, greative notes - you have distributed another both well informing and well entertaining extreme of quality.
Thank you! My best regards,

Hello Alexei !
Looking through your wonderful gallery, I noticed this beautiful picture - we see lots of moon picture, but see the moon (almost) every night, but as you say, this is a true Odessa moon and so it is something very special ! :-) The picture is fantastic. There are some amazing details on the moon, and your light management is excellent. I also like your note, where you included links to other moon shots. very well done !
