"6%..." is a beautiful photo, Mike - well done.

Francis, that is well spotted, and well captured and processed. Unusual indeed.

Thank you both, for sharing these photos.

Shot last night in mediocre seeing with Cirrus cloud cover on top! And that is the best I have had for some time.

With Minolta 400/4.5 and ZWO ASI183MM camera.


With C8 - A closer look at Copernicus and Sinus Iridum





Clear Skies!!!

Nice work Dick, looks like you've captured a good range of star colours. Something to try next time is to open the aperture up a bit and let some more light in. Guaranteed the stars won't be as round though (especially towards the corners)!

Very nice! I would offer ideas for you.... but you already have more experience with this one shot than I do.

Quit a lot of ALPHA gear, a nice collection of Sigma lenses, Dynax and M42 stuff, NEX i.c.w. Sigma's, Gitzo's, Visico's and lots of video-equipment

Looks good Fred! Nice contrast and colour.

Here is my effort in 90% humidity. (bleh)

Tonight's moon

A99ii + 70-400G + 2xTC (Soligor)

Did a little experiment with 2xTC (800mm), 1,4xTC (560mm) and combo of both (1120mm).
Cropped them to match the 1120mm shot.
The 2xTC came out best. Too few samples to call it scientific though.

Thanks - and yeah, me too - I was lucky to get a shot like that before thicker clouds came in blocking out the moon altogether.

@Cucoo

Both of them are very nice - though I prefer the one with the clouds for the added interest in a large frame. And they are both rather better suited to this thread than my last post, since this is a Sony forum.

A good copy of the 100-200 is a nice pocket gem of a lens - even on full frame.

Cheers

Mike

This is a far cry from WestCoastCannuck's setup - mine is A580 with Minolta 100-200mm handheld - but I'm pretty proud of these pictures nonetheless. This was my third time shooting (for) the moon and I'm pretty satisfied considering that I only took these on a whim without even setting up a tripod. That lens is a keeper!
