Photographing an Eclipse: My Impressions of the Nikon 500mm PF

I shoot the vast majority of my work at less than 100mm; my favorite subjects like landscapes, real estate, and aerial scenes all skew towards wide and mid focal lengths. For the recent lunar eclipse, however, I knew I needed a lot of reach. Fortunately, the cosmos aligned (literally in this case) and I had a chance to borrow Nikon’s 500mm PF lens and test it during the eclipse.
