From my back garden using my monster russian mirror and a huge amount of sharpening. I have come to the conclusion that my tripod is the problem with sharpness.

Nice shot Martyn. Could be seeing that is holding you back. The moon looked like it was under water last night at 9pm.

You may be right russ, however it looked very sharp in the viewfinder, but awfully muddy in the unprocessed shot. I had the mirror locked up and self timer on, so the only thing I can think is either mirror shake, or dirty sensor. I know the sensor has dust on it, but I don't feel it is smeared with anything. I hope :icon_salut:

That's a great shot martyn. As russ said, the seeing conditions last night were a bit murky.

Martyn, one question: have you tried stacking multiple image? I used to put the 300D into continuous shoot mode and blast away. Capture 30-40 images, pick out the best and then stack those.

I've always had trouble getting really good moon shots. Nothing's ever beaten my first proper attempt with the 1200mm f/9.5 Achromat I started out with...even the C11, though it got me a lot closer, never seemed to produce really sharp images. Stacking does help a lot though.
