were the first 2 shots taken with the 70-300mm? asking because they seem a bit soft and that is what i have been noticing with my 70-300 at 300mm.
otherwise great shots as always

Yes they were as I with the 70-300, the first one was at 5.6 which is soft on the long end. And the second one was at f16. The sweet spots for 300mm is 7.1-11, I think part of the softness is more of motion blur, as the moon was actually moving quite fast for the longer shutter speed at 100iso

Here is an example of the 70-300 wide open at 300mm
