The Purple Swamphen (Porphyrio porphyrio), also known as the African Purple Swamphen, Purple Moorhen, Purple Gallinule or Purple Coot, is a large bird in the family Rallidae (rails). From its name in French, talève sultane, it is also known as the Sultana Bird. It should not be confused with the American Purple Gallinule, Porphyrio martinica. The common name in New Zealand, used for the subspecies P. p. melanotus, is Pūkeko, which is the Māori name. The variant found in Samoa, P. p. samoensis, is called "manuali'i," meaning "chiefly bird" in the Samoan language.

I find the 1.4x Tc to work great with this lens in most conditions, and the 2x Tc is useable for me in good light.

What are we looking at? "2x" doesn't mean anything for a medium-small image. We need to know the pixel density of the camera, the amount of resizing you did (pixel ratio) and what lens, for this to mean much of anything.

In this case, though, we know you didn't get close to the moon, but still, we need to know what we're looking at. Otherwise, it's just a very nice picture of the moon; not a demonstration of "2x", per se. People draw a lot of false conclusions about equipment from web images; they can make a system seem both far worse, and far better, than they really are.
