I took a couple of shots of the Moon last night.

This one is taken with my Canon 90D, Sigma 150-600 at 600 and with my Sigma 2.0 Tele-Extender for 1200mm

I had been thinking for a few days for the next moon shot I do I would do something different. I remembered something I have seen other people do in the past but I had never thought of doing this. I have a second older 2.0 extender made by Kenko.

Using two tele-extenders at one time makes my setup now 2400mm!!!!

Those are both really good and sharp! I have just the Canon 1.4 iii - which works nicely with the 90D + Sigma. But your combo sure gives extra reach.

Random odd thing: when I use the 1.4 extender+Siggy on my good old Canon 5D ii, it will not even engage autofocus, at any setting. Siggy works fine on the 5D ii without the extender, and the 5D ii works with the extender on other Canon teles (e.g. the 300L). Strange.

Thank you. Yes it does seem rather strange.....

The 5D ii won’t autofocus if the max aperture is greater than 5.6, with the Signa and tc it is F9. The 300 will be F4 or F5.6 depending on whether it is the F2.8 or F4

Yes - that explains it. It doesn't even try to hunt, as if it was switched to MF.
