I wanted to find out the pros and cons on this lens and didn't find enough web footage. After the 2200mm the lens shook a lot. It was challenging with mono-pod today, and will use a good tripod next time. Thanks to my neighbors for being kind and understanding when I shot the footages.

I made some correction in description. There was an additional 2x-teleconverter attached between the lens and t-mount adapter. So it's actually double the measurement of what I wrote previously.
