They stacked quite nicely!Cool shots everyone!
I tried to get around the low light by taking a lot of images and stacking them. I'm not to sure about my settings, but I think I'm happy with it for now. Stack of 300 Images, deconvolution in Photoshop using smart sharpen, Sharpening in Registax.
Wowww! What an amazing shot, Joules! Superb shot!Cool shots everyone!

Who needs a Hubble Space Telescope to take extreme deep field exposures over a period of months, when you've got a Sony?Hi Steve.
“Given the terrible DR of the 6D2, you see only the moon and Jupiter.”
“A Sony would have shown deep space objects, too.”
Sometimes really smart people do rather stupid things.Hi Steve.
I’d like to believe you, but aren’t the two statements, “One wrote back (using reply all)” and “The guy is not an idiot.” mutually exclusive?
Last year I managed to take recognizable (barely) pictures of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars with nothing more than the Tamron 18-400 on a 24 MP APS-C camera, and 100% crops. I could probably do a better job now (exposures too long; thus atmospheric turbulence issues) but I'd want a lens a bit faster at 400mm. I doubt I'd get as good results on a full frame (because of the resolution issues) unless it had similar pixel size, i.e., 61-62 MP.Maybe he has never tried to take picture of the moon. In person, it looks humongous, especially right after it rises, but is only 1/2 degree in the field of view.
I work in a research lab with some VERY smart people, and yes, at times we can do phenomenally dumb things.
It's been quite a while, but I'll chip in here.It is full moon tonight, plus a bonus with Jupiter near the moon.
I went out to the neighborhood for a few shots of these two objects in the sky.
5D3, 70-200 ISO II with 2xII, shot at about 400mm, f/10, 3/10sec., showed Jupiter ok cropped to about 20%. Jupiter's moons can be seen! Really exciting. However, I can seem to get cyclone eye on jupiter's surface. Just don't have the reach, perhaps GAS can help. Also, there was quite a bit of wind shaking the camera/lens assembly so can get very crisp image.
I can get both Jupiter and our moon in the same frame, but the moon is terribly over exposed.
Perhaps I can interest someone with better experience to shoot much better images (than I) and post here.
