I got up about 6 AM and went out to check the skies. The moon was going in and out of some light clouds so I put on some clothes, it was about 29 degrees F, grabbed the tripod and got a few shots. Here is one of them. 5DsR, 100-400L, 1.4 and 2.0TC's together, ISO 800, 1/125, and F13.

Very nice shot Aaron.

Cheers, Graham.

And, hey, there should be a black dot in the middle of Tycho for TMA-1. Maybe with the 83 MP rumored to be on the way...
Took a quick hand held shot this evening at 1/1000s, f/8 iso 640, +1ev in post. You can see the dot in both the absolute vanilla image and one enhanced by clearview on DxO PL3. It's a good phase of the moon for casting shadows in that region.

Hi Alan.
Very nice shots, I like both, the ‘vanilla‘ one because it is what we see, and the enhanced one for the incredible detail we can’t see.

Cheers, Graham.

Same here; that sums it up nicely, even poetically.

Last night the sky was perfectly clear so I snapped some moon photos before bed. Hand held, 100-400+1.4TC, 5DsR First one is straight from the raw converter, the second one is tweaked.

After a few more hours sleep I redid the Raw conversion. The first is the original, the second the reworked one. I tried to tone down the highlights.
