VERY nice shot! I have similar equipment (E-M5.3, 100-400 ; the 1.4 TC) and I am wondering - is this cropped? Also, did you use multiple shots and combining them, or this just a single shot? If you took multiples, how many and at what burst rate? I'm thinking of trying this (when it gets warmer!).

If this shot is cropped, does anyone know what magnification (in FF terms, I suppose) is necessary to completely fill the frame without cropping?
I apologize for not replying sooner. This photo was shot in Handheld Hi Res mode while on a stable tripod. This photo is the JPEG version of the HHHR shot. It was cropped 62% to a size of 2581x 2481 pixels. This method provides excellent results. As far as Full Frame terms I will leave that to others that are more familiar with those computations.

Surely FF terms aren't needed here - it is after all a micro four thirds forum so we should all be able to recognise the FOV from a ~600mm lens. Changes in aspect ratio make it a slightly more complex answer than the usual diagonal crop factors suggest.

Thanks for the info. Still needs cropping even with all that FL power, huh. The moon isn't large enough, obviously. ;)

HHHR, huh. Very interesting. Gives me another excuse for buying an E-M1.3 (I have an E-M5.3)! Are you using the idea of HHHR on a tripod for use with the moon because of the findings in this video, mentioned earlier in some other thread?:
(even if you are not, it is very informative, I think.) Using HHHR for the moving moon on a tripod is certainly non-stnadard, but that video says it is the best way and your results certainly indicate that. :)

Yes, I can figure out what is what, as long as folks indicate what is used. I said, " (in FF terms, I suppose)" for a reason; I just wanted it to be clear what is needed to fill the frame with the moon in clear FL terms. From @MJRodock 's answer, we still need more! Time for some digi-scoping (oh no!!).

I did in fact watch that video and take cues from it. The E-M1.3 is a very nice camera.
