Finally a clear night and some spare time.  First is 6D with Tamron 150-600, second is M with Tamron 150-600.   Both at 600mm with same camera settings.  These are 100% crops with lens profile applied in LR, but no other adjustments.  Scaled on the forum they look quite close.  Open the jpegs to see full size.

Hi DCM,
I think thats really good quality, The 6D is FF right?
Slightly surprised at the (good) tamron 600mm end quality TBH.
I dont think the jpg's are the original image though right? they look the same size to me?

Id say the M was marginally sharper, but theres less noise in the 6D?

YEP, 6D is FF. 

Image quality drops off a bit above 400mm on the Tamron, but it's still usable.  AFMA is important when not using live view - mine copy is +8 or one depth of field off.   The biggest challenge is learning to shoot with a 600mm FL when the max used in the past was 200mm.   I needed to improve my technique, upgrade my tripod/head, use a cable relase, and experiment several times.   My first images didn't look nearly as good and there is probably still room to improve based on others I've seen. Still need to try a location outside of town in a darker zone.

CR resizes the JPGs on the this page they they appear the same size.  You can click the link below each image to see the original 100% crop JPGs created with same settings in LR.  Then you will see the difference in image sizes (1047 square vs 1456 square - different amounts of border) and can view the EXIFs.

I took this 2 nights ago in Pafos in Cyprus. The focal length was 1800mm on a 7DII, using a Kenko 3xTC stacked onto a Canon 2xTCIII on a 300mm f/2.8 II. I hand held the set up, loosely balanced on a shaking palm tree, focussed automatically in liveview, and could just get the moon into the frame. Exposure was 1/80s, f/17 iso 640. It was a miracle I got a sharp shot.

I'm such a noob with astro but this is from last year when I was in Buellton
On a ranch on the Central Coast with very little city light to screw me.  Playing with the 1.4 on the 70-700 (effective 280mm)f/4, iso 160. Cropped to my hearts content.

Lovely shot Keith!

Since you have a 5DIII, why don't you load MagicLantern and use the dual ISO feature for shots like this. That way you could expose for the moon and the landscape in a single shot.

Excellent...especially handheld! 8)

Thanks :)  I went up the mountain and clouds moved in as I set up.  I was about ready to pack it in but decided to snap a few.  Sometimes you never know what you'll get.
