I'm only looking on my phone but that's far more detailed than any of my moon shots.
What lens did you use?

I think that the V1 shot was the equivalent of 1620mm - (300 x 2 x 2.7)
A pretty detailed shot with it too.

I struggle to repeat that level of detail with the OM e m 10 (wish they would call it a name ether than a string of letters and numbers)

Just looking at getting a V1 and FT1 adapter - how do you find AF? Is it still quite quick or does it hunt a lot?

Only really want it for moon shots and maybe a little wildlife.

I use the V1 + FT-1 + 400mm f4 for Dragonflies and it is good for that and the AF is quick

I have tried taking bird shots with the 300mm and 600mm the V1 hunts quite a lot and can be frustrating - even though you do not "loose light" you need good light for the AF

with moon shots - obviously it is the lens that counts and many people use manual focus and then check with the focus confirm - it is a stationery subject, (the moon), so no problem

when I took the moon shots I also took a shot with the D700 and D7100 + the 300mm at f8 with the x 2 TC

the V1 image was "as good" as the other two

there is a V1 images thread with lots of examples and comments
