Your new lens got a crystal-clear image of a mountain in a crater. I think it's Archimedes. That Mousetoescamper Jan 2023 #3

Thank you for telling me. I knew this lens was sharp -- but what you told me goes beyond sharp!

I was not using a tripod; it was hand-held!

Thank you so much!

to get this shot in 2013. The lens was a 75-300 Canon. Quite a difference in clarity compared to your shot!

My hands are often shaking. The image stabilization in the lens as well as in the camera talk to each other which increases the overall stabilization. It’s amazing!

Thanks It's so cool that people can take those photos and not be an observatory or part of NASA. I can't but thanks for showing this.

Answer: when we're talking about phases of the moon.
This almost-first-quarter photo has great resolution.

You're exactly right on both counts, and no surprise there!
