I also had an opportunity to shoot the moon in the morning.

I had my Lumix G9 with my new to me Leica 100-400mm at 400mm. Shot at f11, ISO 100 and 1/100. I took 15 shots and stacked them in Siril. Had to work on getting the right white balance to keep a somewhat blue sky. Pretty happy with the outcome.

I had a chance to get a 'Waxing Crescent' moon before sunrise this morning. Found it hard to get a great focus, but after several attempts, I manged to get a decent focus manually. G9 with PL 100-400mm at 400mm. f8.0, ISO 100, 1/125s. 15 shots taken 1 second apart. Stacked in Siril.

This is a shot taken of the full moon a couple of hours ago, using the FZ1000 with the Canon TC-DC58 1.5X teleconverter. The Canon is in my opinion just as sharp as the Nikon TC-E17ED, but because it is lighter it doesn't set off the FZ1000 zoom error notification when zooming compared to the NIKON. I used 80 ISO to keep the noise from the smaller 1" sensor to the bare minimum. Shot at 10MP so that I could get some reach on the zoom, and used the shutter speed setting to under expose so that I could get as much detail without blown highlights.

Recently purchased an MC-20 from a member here and took a moon shot this morning. It would be rude not to share.

Hope to get out in nature with this combo sometime during the holidays.

Here is a shot taken a few days ago. Lumix G9 with the Leica 100-400mm at 400mm. f7.1, ISO 100, 1/100 shutter speed. I take 15 shots 1 second apart. Then using the application Siril, the images are stacked and sharpened. Pretty happy with this result.

It was a reasonably clear night earlier on. So I decided to test my new G90 at 10M and 5M to see how it performs at those settings. I don't shy away from using them on occasions.
No noise reduction added, so that I can see how the G90 sensor performs at those reduced pixel rates.

First shot is at 10M.

The 2nd was taken an hour later at 5M

I am actually quite pleased with the initial result, especially the detail.

I see you found serenity or at least something Selene to shoot!
As sharp as they could be.

That G9/G90 sensor does have a bit more bite to it compared to the other GX and G series cameras. Moon shots are arguably one of the best way to test sensor resolving power.
