WOW you can do a headshot of the MAN IN THE MOON!!
Or your x if you had one.

(I just got him with a 450mm equivalent. I think you could call it an
envirmental portrait as I also got a few galaxies in there with him
But I finally after all theses years have a viable shot of many details of
the surface of moon which I'd always heard was a job for something at least
500mm and the longest I've ever had was a 200.)
