there is no detectable seam on my copy of the 645Z,, fwiw. it appears to be a continuous single sensor.

Some years ago, i incorporated Legos to fix mine and never had an issue since:

I look at it this way. I am still not worthy of my camera's capabilities. It does more than I need it to do. Should that change, I'll start shopping again.

To the OP, I will say hell yes the 645Z is still as superb an option today as it ever was.
If it suits your shooting style, and you can appreciate superior image quality, look no further, the 645Z and available array of lenses are high performers.

If you need rapid burst shooting or moving target focus tracking, this is not your tool, but for scenic, macro, portrait, product work, and high ISO work, it is as good as it gets in this price range.

Good luck shopping.

thanks for the reply.
Alignment of images is not an issue; i'm fine there. it's just that individual craters waver within the perimeter of the moon itself. I think you answered that part by shooting high and in cold air.
thanks again

this is gorgeous - well done!
Question regarding the stack of 18 images. I have tried this and find that the constantly pulsing waves(atmospheric effect) create a moving distortion effect, such that stacking multiple images are just different enough to negate the benefits gained by the stack. How are you getting successive images that match closely? thanks

following with interest...

When I owned the 645D, if I compressed the dynamic range excessively in post, I could also see that seam down the center of the image, and at times there were slight variations in color response between the two sides. Curious what was happening there.

I do like my astro too, and I didn't want to get greedy, but yeah, a fast wide lens would be amazing...but I suspect over $5,000 USD.
