The moon shot with a Sigma 170-500mm and a 1000mm prime lens with an Adaptimax attached to a Sony PMW-EX3. The Adaptimax gives a magnification factor of X5.4 meaning the 1000mm prime turns into a 5400mm Lens!! The shimmering effect is caused by the filming the moon at a 45 degree angle through the earths atmosphere. More footage at adaptimax.com.
