I did some moon pictures through my amateur telescope (912mm + 2x extender) some weeks ago. The little m did a good job!

I love this shot!

I shot this one with tripod, a 5D II, 800L F5.6 + 2xIII converter

Thanks! But your pic is also nice.

One small suggestion to improve it: separate the pic into its RGB components and shift the blue layer maybe 1 or 2 pixel down and the red 1 or 2 pixel up with respect to the green layer. By this you compensate for the atmospheric spectrum visible (it acts like a prism). This is even more helpfull when taking pics at lower elevation. One can always try to do this to taste...
