A few nice manfrotto images I found:

I bought the 100-400 originally not to photograph birds but to photograph the moon. But I do not often see it because it was always so cloudy in Hong Kong and even if I have a full view of the sky, I do not see it.

But I did finally. I shot this with the 7D, because it has a crop-frame factor of 1.6x. I used the 1.4x Extender also. Altogether this gives me a 400 x 1.6 x 1.4 = 896 mm equivalent on a full-frame.

The cavit of sticking the 1.4x on the 100-400 is that you lose AF completely because with the exception of the 1D line which can focus at f/8, none of the other camera bodies can. With this in mind I might actually buy a 2x extender to see if I can get any closer.

I used a release cable for this shot but I can see some vibration at full-res. So next time I see it again I will use a mirror-lockup. I am also thinking of buying a geared head for the tripod because it seems that even on the tripod the camera still moves after some adjustments—no matter how small.

The Chinese name is quite descriptive as ? is a goose and ? is the eyelashes — it describes the moon as looking like the eyelashes of geese.
