Almost Supermoon

The time in the year when the moon is not only "full" but as close at it gets to us thanks to it's ellipsoid orbit. The best time to do moon shots resolution wise :O) Turned it upside down so it looks more the way it looks in the northern hemisphere. Sorry for the grains, somehow my stacking program is on strike atm.

Nikon D5100 Sigma 150-500, 500mm @ f8 1/500s iso100, heavily cropped

Used contrast/brightness, sharpening and histogram adjustments in the gimp.
