I think they all look excellent. I wish I could stack the Sony teleconverters.

Thank you Gene! ;-)a

I can finally post some new Moon shots. 2-3 weeks ago I got a new (new to me anyways) Kenko 2.0 Teleconverter. This time of the year good ole Indiana loves to stay mostly on the cloudy side. Today it gave me a clear sky to finally try my teleconverter and see how well it works on the Moon.

All of these are with my 150-500 lens at 500MM

This one is 500 + 1.4 (for comparison)

Now I know these cannot compare to those using telescopes... but for using two teleconverters, how did I do for my first try?

The last one should have been centered better I do see that now after the fact....

I think the 2X was a good investment. Great stuff!

Yes... also the same with Amount. That is why I bought the Kenko. I can't stack my 1.4X and 2X together but I can stack either of them with the Kenko and they work great together. 8-)

Now I just need a clear sky.... starting to forget what that looks like. :-x

I don't believe stacking E-mount teleconverters using an extension tube is possible, unfortunately.

Hope you get clear skies soon.

Extension tube?? Not sure what you mean by that. Original Sony or Minolta A-mount TC's cannot be stacked together... but some third party TC's CAN be stacked with an OEM A-mount converters. I bought a Kenko Pro 3X TC. Works great on its own, and also stacked with either my 1.4X OR my 2X Minolta TC's. (making either 4.2X or 6X magnification of original FL)

May you all have clear skies. (I am still waiting)

Cheers

Mike

This was a very cool photo due to the gray/blue clouds in the background.

Isn't the first shot a composite?

Here's a recent try with the Canon EOS R / Extender x1.4 III/ Extender x2.0 II / Canon EF 400mm F5.6 L to give an effective focal length of 1120mm at F16.

Cheers

Dennis

Wow, thanks for that. Good to see the EOS R producing some great images. And first time I've see two extenders being used! And what I find really cool is that for me as a European your moon looks upside down :-P:-P

LOL! Yeah, I'm from the UK and it took me a while to adjust to the Moon and Orion being upside down.:-)

It is worth noting that with the Canon Extender EF 1,4 Mk III and Extender EF 2.0 Mk II, you have to fit the x1.4 to the camera body and the x2.0 to the lens as shown in the photo.

You cannot mate the x2.0 to the x1.4 the other way (i.e. x2 on body, x1.4 on lens). The sub-diameter protruding lens cell on the front (lens end) of the x2.0 fouls the rear element (camera body end) of the x1.4.:-(

Cheers

Dennis

The first shot is not a composite.

We had unique gray/blue clouds a few nights ago and it was lovely.

I did have difficulty trying to edit it because I wanted to be able to show the different cloud colors. It was right at sunset.

I normally slide the white and black sliders to the left to black out the sky behind the moon.
