Canon FDn400/4.5 and NEX-7
Could I ask how much post processing you need to do to achieve these results?
Dang, I wish I could get that out of my camera/lens combo.
Never been successful with any moon PP out of Lightroom...discovered that when I upload a moon shot to Photobucket (my hosting site) there is a simple basic control called "High Definition" which I usually apply...its not even a slider, just click on or off, seems to make the craters stand out better.
And all this assumes to begin with that you're using Magnified Focus Assist, a tripod, held rigidly in place by a heavy weight under it, not touching the tripod, using a remote trigger, etc, etc
I think you nailed it. My technique sucks. I really should get serious about this one of these days.
Yeah, I reached the point of thinking that whatever lengths I go to shooting a sharp picture of the inside of a stationary flower only a few inches away with a macro lens, I have to AT LEAST take all the same steps for something that's almost a quarter million miles away traveling at 2300 mph.
Guess I need to save up for a remote release for the Nex. I tried using the timer release but it didn't seem to work as well as my remote for my Nikon. I should probably take my ball head off my Slik too as there's too many joints in that system as well. Thanks rb, keep those shots coming.
