Nice lenses.

…is to look at whether it can see the moon in daylight.

I was out getting firewood at noon when I happened to look up and see that the moon is in the first quarter. On a whim I left the bucket in the woodshed and went inside for that nice digital camera somebody gave me last year. Stuck the mem card in the laptop, and sure enough: The moon was almost as discernible on the pic as it was in real life.

Pretty cool!

    The photo of the crescent moon is a nice demonstration of a good camera/lens combination. With a little practice and experimentation, your photos will get better and better. That’s the nice thing about a digital SLR, there is no film cost to worry about so you can play to your heart’s content.
