Rafael, thanks a bunch for posting the details of how you got the shot. The cable release I am sure adds to the quality. I need to drag out my remote cable for the D800. I saw the moon shake through the lens yesterday once I was done focusing and making sure it was somewhere near the center of the frame. I kind of clamped down on the tripod head to try and damp down the vibrations, held my breath and took the shot, not exactly good technique. Live view seems like the way to go also since the mirror slap is going to add the shake.
I always need to do a pass through sharpen in PSE and any noise gets exacerbated. Keeping the ISO low also is a very good tip. I will stick to the TC301 and TC14.
Thank you Samy, allow me to share the techie side of getting that shot, I piled up the converters, one TC300, one TC 201 and one TC 14. The image is not cropped top to bottom. The quality of the lens is much lowered, but still better than 15 miles of atmosphere looking straight up or 100+ early in the rise/set. I closed the lens to f8 to get reasonable performance. Set the left top dial to mirror up,and exposure delay menu to three seconds, I use a cable release and set the ISO to 800, as the D800 gets...Show more →
