Lovely previous photos everyone.  The best I could do with the 400 DO II X2 III.  I am still struggling with the new 1DX II and hadn't used LV - when I tried I got movies.  So I went back to the VF.

Well Done Jack.

From my Apartment the Moon rises over the Pacific, cloudless conditions, so although looked nice, there was really nothing to Photograph the Moon against, so I just watched loads of People sitting down on the Beach watch the rising Moon, didn't take a single Image.

Great images all!  From my perspective, I saw this....
A few cameras (Canon, Fuji & Sony) and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

The atmospherics killed the 5DS resolution.  You could see a "boiling look" on the moon's surface when zoomed all the way in on the LCD during live view.  The higher the shutter speed, the better chance of getting the turbulence effect reduced.   I turn on IS to focus, then shut it off to shoot.  Once I have the moon centered and focused and IS off, I leave the live view fully zoomed in to see when the vibrations are gone.
 

Thanks for the tip/reminder on turning the IS off, I forgot to do this earlier.  Higher shutter speed and the moon being fairly high in the sky also help sharpness over my earlier attempts.  I also found my 2-second timer wasn't sufficient to calm camera shake after pushing the shutter so I brought out my cable release.  Its been mostly cloudy here since Monday, but we had a window of clear sky about an hour ago and I got several like this.

5DsR, 300 f/2.8 II, 2.0x III extender, tripod mounted.  This shot is a pretty heavy crop, you ideally need a longer lens for this.

Considering the crop, this is really good! I have one shot the moon once with the 5DS and that was the moon rise.  I need to shoot it a few hours after the rise just to check out the resolution.

Sadly, I didn't get a great super moon due to too much cloud cover, but here is a shot from the following night (super moon day + 1).  Unfortunately, that also meant the moonrise was an hour after sunset, so I blew out the moon to get the foreground, but like the effect anyway.
