PRESS RELEASE
Date Released: Saturday, June 21, 2008
Source: NASA HQ

Visitors will have the rare chance to touch a piece of a moon rock this weekend in a new NASA exhibit at the DFW Summer Balloon Classic at the Mid-Way Regional Airport in Midlothian.
The centerpiece of the exhibit is the opportunity to touch a lunar rock sample picked up on the moon and brought to Earth by the astronauts of Apollo 17 in 1972, America's last human mission to the moon. The almost 4-billion-year-old rock is one of only six lunar samples in the world made available for the public to touch and feel.

Wow, what a picture!!  And what an opportunity, to touch an actual piece of moon rock!  Shame I've come across this eleven and a half years too late!!!  I actually remember Saturday, 21st June 2008:  I was beaten up badly by someone I thought was a mate.  Just goes to show you...

Are you using a special objective? Or how you can make photos with such a huge depth of field?
