lol, yes I did, but they were nothing special. I had some blurry blots across the Moon, but nothing good.

Thank you for the comments everyone. Yeah, I would have loved getting the airplane sharper, but it's not like I had time to set this shot up. I was at a local bird preserve and was going to shoot Sand Hill Cranes in front of the rising full Moon and had just set the camera on my tripod and was dialing in the exposure when I noticed the plane coming into the frame so it was panic time. He was to that far away from me, so he was moving fairly fast through the frame and I was sweating bullets that I'd miss him.

Thanks again for your comments and your votes.

Great shot....

:)

And ignore the focus issue, it's not easy getting a an object a few miles away in focus with one that's oh what a few millions miles away... ;)

This picture would be better if plane wasn't so blurry. Great shot otherwise

Very interesting. Maybe the plane is out of focus a little.

Now if this is a live capture, we should all be the "cow jump[ing] over the moon". Nicely framed and executed, made me think for more than a sec.

8 - Like this, makes you 'think'. Criticism; no expert on moon shots but seems you have done well to capture the silhouette(?) of the plane and still retain the detail you have in the moon. Maybe a tweaking of colors to get some added effect here would have made this even better in my opinion.
