Was yours handheld?
Heheh, from your EXIF: Subject Distance 650.24 m
Maybe just a tad farther than that, eh?
Yes, 700mm hand held, BUT at 1/2500-sec.
The key was waiting for the moon to rise high enough to minimize haze and smog. Also, we'd had a front come through in the morning, so haze was less of a problem than usual.
Even at relatively close distances, the distance EXIF always seems funky to me.
