An other shoot taken during last full moon with Sigma 135-400 +TC Tamron 1.4 x :

Other one a few month ago, same lens, but a composit of about 30 shoots .
Restitution with IRIS V.5.51 :

Robert Capa says : " If your pictures are not good, you are not close enough ..."
... With a good software as IRIS , distance ( 384 400 km Earth/Moon ) is not a real problem , everything become close enough !
