If you are using the 50-500 lens I am surprised you haven't been able to get a closer view
The following photos are the original & cropped versions of of PIA 747 over my house at the same height of 8000ft using my 100-400 lens
Try cropping around the aircraft and posting a photo so that we can see the quality

this is the unedited cropped version. My camera skills are pretty useless still at the moment (need to switch auto mode off) but a few chaps on here have been giving me tips so I am improving. the purpose of this thread was just to get an idea if my photoshop skills had gotten better.
Hopefully will get to Gatwick tomorrow to practice on aircraft a little closer to the floor.

Quoting Airimages (Reply 10): Wow, it looks very good. What did you do exactly with photoshop?
All I done was do away with the dust spots, then darkened the background, then sharpened the edges and then used the unsharp mask to make it look better, errr not really sure what that tool does but it made it look better, trust me on that one

It was on Auto, which I know is bad, but I have not managed to get my head around camera settings yet. There are a couple of D70 books avialable and I will try and get one from the London Camera Exchange on Friday when I go back to work.
