Nice! I surprised at the fast shutter speed. If I would have guessed I would have said small aperture and longer shutter speed with a solid tripod. But I've never tried...
Ok I shot these tonight with a 70/300:
Nice shots. The few I've taken of the moon were not pretty at all....
katanapilot - did you do any sharpening? It looks like you did a fair amount of it, and you over-sharpened. I say that because the contrast between highlands and maria look sharp (so it's not that there was shake/tracking/atmosphere issues, but the features look blob-like, a characteristic of over-sharpening.
It's one of my main pet peeves in lunar photography, which is why I mention it.
Yes I did some in LR, what do you think should be fair? I added perhaps 30% of sharpening to the image.
Personally, I prefer no sharpening. If you feel you must, I use very very minimal sharpening. I'd need to see the original to give you an idea of whether or not I'd sharpen it.
I think most images need some sharpening. Digital senseors are never as sharp as they should be, and if you're like me (turn off all on camera processing), a little bit of PS love is always welcome. That being said, the last two do look a bit oversharpened. In PS, I usually do 75-100% at .5px for web sizes, but let your eyes be the judge. If you see pixellation anywhere besides an edge, you've done too much!
