Even with O.I.S.; the faster the shutter speed the better. Without O.I.S. the rule is for a 420mm zoom (full resolution) the shutter speed would have to be 1/420th second or better. And for extended optical zoom even faster. O.I.S. allows for a slower speed by a few stops, but I guess what a few stops means is defined by how steady the camera holder is. I know I would not get a moon near that sharp at the speeds you used.

here are some from last night a few hours before the eclipse' and during the eclipse. Though the speeds for the first few were faster than for the couple taken a few days ago, they are lee sharp. Maybe the full moon is harder to capture. the eclipse was done with a tripod and took 5-7 seconds, colours are relatively o.k. but no sharpness and details. what did I do wrong?
