Almost Full Moon

I think tomorrow is the full moon, but this is pretty close.

Moon

Taken with the Nikon D1 with the 100-500 mm telephoto lens, clear at 500 mm.  1/100 sec, f/7.1 at ISO-400.  Not too bad for a purely manual lens!  Oh yeah, and on the tripod, as there is virtually to way to hold 5 pounds of camera and lens steady enough to take a shot like this!

What year was this?

Click to make it bigger.  And no, that is not my cat Clive!  I think that one’s name was Moron.
