you be the judge...tried some suggestions from last time...diffraction was definitely an issue and picture quality was much better at f8 to ? (you decide)...tried shutter speed of 800, 1000 or 1250?, 1600 so no issues with shake...only did K3 and did not evaluate K5 iis ...with sigma 500mm 4.5 ex..

I think they all look pretty good to me !

The Siggy 500 and the K3 make a good couple!

Looks as good as I get with a full moon. I took someone's suggestion on this blog and tried a half moon. The shadows of the craters improved the image out of sight. Hand held half moon looked better than tripod full moon doing everything right. Similar setup k5 sigma 500 4.5
