            Definitely a nice photo Huw, was a good clear moon last night...

            Did you stack a few? I took a single photo, which turned out better than a set that I stacked. Must be the focus I guess...

              Yes, about 40 images. Although very clear last night the Moon was relatively low in the sky so atmospheric disturbances were not ideal.

                Nice work guys. I was the wrong side of a bottle of red when I saw the moon and realised it was a clear night so didn't venture out.

                  Its forecast to be clear again tonight in our area and I am pretty sure the Moon will come around again so no excuses, go for it

                      I didn't think so at the time Huw but now not quite so sure

                      It looks lovely out today so far so if it stays clear then yes I'll definitely have a go tonight Dave.

                      OK here's a dumb stacking question. I presume you are not using the focus stacking in camera but are shooting off several images and then using a separate stacking programme? If it's the latter do you just shoot at the highest fps and then stack the images? If it's the former what settings do you use?

                            Another tip is to use manual mode. Try and set your exposure times to as fast as possible at least 1/250th sec or even faster if possible., by upping the ISO to 400 or so. You can set your aperture to as wide as your lens will allow as there is effectively no depth of field to worry about. I use manual focus and use the Zoom frame function to adjust the magnification to 14X i.e max possible to help focussing . The Moon moves very fast so a short burst of shots is best, then re centre and repeat.

                              I have to say that this is one thread that I thoroughly enjoy returning to again and again and again. Not able to get out and about or see very much when I do.

                              Superb images with lots of info to boot. A real work of perseverance, dedication and skill. I take my hat off to all involved.

                              Looking forward to more of the same. Thanks for sharing.
                              It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

                                Hi Phill, yes just single burst of 40 frames, electronic shutter at 60FPS. The frames were aligned and sacked in Registax.
