I find focusing anything smaller than the moon very difficult with my 2x and tamron 200-400mm. Keen to hear how you go.
The solution (I think...) is to use EOS Remote - as long as you have a wifi enabled camera.
The problem I found with the 150-600 is that even on a decent tripod, as soon as you engage Live View and 5x or 10x magnification to help with manual focusing, then as soon as you touch the focus ring then even the slightest movement is magnified so much in the view that it is hard to do as the object jump all over the place and will disappear from the view. Worse, when the object is moving itself.
However, with EOS Remote you have no need to touch the camera and the manual focusing with a magnified view can be done remotely, and there is no movement at all.
