For a while now I have wanted to take a good photo of the moon.
Now that I have the Sigma 150-500mm I finally felt that I had a chance of getting there.
The lens is not at its sharpest when you fully zoom, so I kept it at 439mm. f/11. My first good result was at 1/30 of a second and while the bottom left came out great, as you can tell, the top right blew out. It really is due to motion. Hard to believe but it moves that fast, really.

Then I tried it again with a lot shorter of an exposure time: 1/125 sec. Now I am pretty happy with it.
The photos I took from the window sill of our hotel room in La Rochen-en-Ardenne, Belgium, this week.

Both images developed in Lightroom and somewhat cropped.
