After Sunday dinner with the sunset just ending there was still a nice orange glow on the moon. Pretty proud of myself this was with a Vivitar 500m lens which is manual everything. I’m still learning photography, so critiques would be nice!

Here is a photo of our Moon and two of our Solar System’s gas giants, the planets Jupiter and Saturn taken with the following set up:

[Canon EOS R6] + [Canon EF-EOS R Mount Adapter] + [Canon Extender x2.0 Mk III] + [Canon Extender x2.0 Mk II] + [Canon 12mm EF 12 II] + [Canon Extender x1.4 Mk III] + [Canon 100-400 F4.5-5.6L IS USM Mark II], tripod mounted using Electronic Shutter and a cable release.

My calculations suggest this combination gives a FL of 2240mm at F32.:-)

The system would autofocus and indicate it had achieved focus, but when I inspected an image on the rear LCD, it did not appear to be quite in focus. I then switched to Manual Focus and invoked “Focus Assist” on the EOS R6 to confirm focus using the “Green Triangles” Focus Assist Icons displayed on the rear LCD of the EOS R6.

I took 100 shots and then used a specialist Astrophotography Application (Autostakkart!3) to Align and Stack them to improve the SN ratio and finished off the output TIF file in PS CC.

The image here is a 1600x1600 full res crop from the centre of the frame up and I have also blended in the photos of Jupiter and Saturn at the same image scale.

Cheers

Dennis

I did not think it was possible to stack multiple Canon TC's together. Amazing photography you were able to achieve doing this!!!

You got them! Congrats. It was pretty murky skies here. Mine look like they're through a fog, because they were.

Between the heat and haze, mine didn't turn out as well as I hoped. Here's my attempt near the conjunction of our Moon and the planet Mars. It was hazy tonight with the temp being 89° at the time this shot was taken at 8:57 p.m. (the high today was 107.7°). Shot using the Sony 200-600mm lens at 600mm + the 2x extender for a total of 1200mm focal length. Full disclosure, I composited Mars onto the Moon shot in order to get them both in the frame at the time I took these shots.

Gene,

You have a great shot there! I did the same thing, took a shot for Mars and took a shot for the Moon then put them together.

Thanks Charles. Here is one where I did get both in the same shot. I zoomed out to 694mm, which included the 2x extender, in order to see both objects in the frame.

:D If you're ever in the neighborhood, allow me to buy you a beer.

The order of 2x-2x-12-1.4x combo works. Camera functions. It gives me a false aperture reading of f/6.3-f/8.0 but it works.

I'm hoping to get some clear skies this weekend. :D

That is excellent news, good to see that it is a consistent behaviour and not just a one off fluke!:-)

I think that the SW only reports the Extender directly connected to the lens and "ignores" the others in the optical train.

Cheers and clear skies.:-)
