Tonight's Super Moon
Lens: DA*300 Camera: KP Photo Location: Alpharetta, GA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8

Also used DA1.4x. Unfortunately, it is very hazy tonight, which did make it appear a little oof- but I Lightroomed the crap out of it, lol. I tried both single shots and pixelshift. This is a pixelshifted shot. It IS possible to shoot the Moon with pixelshift employed, without either artifacts or the dreaded edge stitching- just takes some patience...

Pretty nice detail given the conditions!

Based on how pixel shift works, though, I wouldn't expect it to bring any benefit in a shot like this. The motion correction could simply be dropping all but the first frame, though I could be wrong.

Thanks, Adam. Admittedly, it's not worth the effort, but I've found that the Moon moves slowly enough @420mm that if the shutter speed is fast enough to allow maximum speed for the four exposures- and everything else is still (no high winds at high altitudes, camera movement, etc)- maybe one-in-10 shots will end up seemingly highly detailed with no artifacts (fairly certain this shot had MC turned off). Well... maybe fewer than that, lol. But it does work sometimes when everything is just right.
