Thanks you. Yes it was, Deal Pier in Kent, UK. I went to the pier to see if I could incorporate the moon in to a pier shot...but it was in the wrong place and didn't look that good. But I came away with a few shots like this that I didn't expect.

This used a focal length of 800mm, which I achieved with a ef 400 f2.8 LIS (a stunning optic) and a 2x TC

Here's another 1200mm shot which is grantedly over processed, and then magnified by posting, haven't got the trick of smooth image addition yet.


Be nice if the title of this thread was "moon shots" just tweaks the imagination a bit more.

And GMC that moon over water is fetching.

For sharpening shots like this I would use wavelets, take a look at:

Here's an image from the other night:



It's a two shot composite using different exposures to capture the scene as my eye saw it

Gave a try this morning at capturing the ISS transiting in front of the moon. Unfortunately a tiny cloud decided to spoil the show just at the wrong moment (really unlucky, as the sky was overall mostly clear  >:( ).

Otherwise it turned out OK, at least for a first try, I think I didn't mess up the settings too much. I'm happy to get advice on how I can improve the capture process, hopefully I get to try again soon in better conditions.

As a side note, all the supposed flaws of the 5D Mark IV for video really worked for me here. Big crop factor was actually helpful, and the MJPG codec was a good thing for extracting and stacking frames.

Settings: 5D Mark IV, EF 100-400mm L II + 1.4x III Extender, f/8, 1/500s, ISO 2500. 4k capture @30fps, frames extracted, cropped and stacked in PS.
