    Is that a 100% crop? Looks better than anything I've taken with my 70-300 (of the moon I mean).

    Of course it's soft, it's made of cheese.


    Rez, yup, 100% crop.

    I tried again and added 'b'

    They look a bit oversharpened to me, but the detail is good.

    Was this with 100-400 L?

    B shows some bad posterization of the highlighted areas and it looks bad.

    If the purpose was to show only details of the Longomontanus crater I understand the crop (big crater at the bottom).

    I don't like a death center crop for the moon. Is to simple and dull. I like better your moon that you showed us the other day.

    A looks soft to me and B looks oversharpened. Find a middle ground? :p

    Wish I had a lens that would let me get close enough for shots / crops like those!
