Here is a quicky, hand held 5DSR 400mm II + 2xTC. Top is natural, bottom is overcontrasted and microcontrasted by racking up DxO Photolab, ugh.

I really like the bottom version.  I think some additional processing when the moon is the only subject can sometimes make for a more interesting image (obv from my post).  Either way, pretty cool that you could take that hand held.

I was expecting cloudy skies, but I woke up early anyway...lucky to catch the first part of totality as it clouded over soon after.

It was -30C so I didn't have a lot of patience, I would love tips to get a little more detail next time!  I used tripod, MF, zoomed in 10X, cable release...

ISO 400, F/8, 1s

From last night.....

It was -24C outside, so I went out with a 7D2, 2X teleconverter, and a 150-600 lens on a heavy tripod. Surprisingly, the AF worked in live-view!

As it was chilly, I was quick.... this image is 22 frames stacked together.

You are right. A full moon is pretty boring because of the lack of shadows. And if you like detail, there is hugely more in my overcontrasted version.

Why is there a halo around the rim? How did you stack? I am also curious as to why you used a 2xTC on a f/6.3 lens. The DLA of the 7DII is f/6.6 and so f/12.6 will reveal hardly any extra detail and the 2xTC hits the IQ.

I couldn't agree more; the bottom shot is quite interesting.

Shot this through my living room window as it was way to cold outside -25C (Edmonton Alberta, Canada)
Used my SL1 and a 55-250 lens. It's noisier than I would like but that seems to be par for the course with the SL1.

The short answer is, that I was just goofin around :)

I wanted to see what would happen if I put the teleconverter in line, and ran the images through Registax... and to see if the wavelet sharpening could recover any of the lost detail through "mushy" optics....
