I still have a long way to go with getting a feel for the new lens, but the moon was looking too good to miss last night. A slight mist meant that the focus isn't perfect, but it's come out quite well (thanks to Toomanytribbles for the idea to turn off image stabilisation when using a tripod). I applied a little tone mapping to bring out the areas which were very bright so that there was a little more texture and I'll be keeping an eye out for the full moon in a few days. I'll keep you posted.
Notice by the way that Neptune is close to Venus at the moment and at magnitude 7.9 it's spottable with a pair of binoculars or a camera. I'll see if I can get a shot of it in the next few days. Mercury should also be visible with the naked eye just after sunset.
