Default fz100 lt55 moon

first attempt at a moon shot with the LT55 t/con. gotta say im very happy with the results. i did a before and after and the difference in detail is more than marginal. all i did to this pic is a little denoise in topaz and no other pp at all. to be honest it looked good off the camera but i was trying hard to improve it even a little to see if i could. it wasnt fully dark, so close zoom was the only way to cut out any fading caused by lighter sky. 1st one is without the t/con.

Both nice shots! However, I can't see much difference with the LT55.

detail is sharper and clearer in the second shot Carol. and less zoom required to get the second shot which means the camera's sensor isnt having to work as hard to get that detail. 1st shot was full zoom, second shot was about half. basically, if you can make even a slight bit of difference in the definition of detail on something as vivid and far away as the moon, imagine what difference that makes on a Kingfisher at 40 meters

Really nice, something I haven't had any success with! You must give me tips on how to do these.

tonight's moon displayed normally first then played with to some amount. i chose lithograph style because i like the way it enhances detail and in black and white to show light and shade a bit better. the moon had a lovely warm orange glow tonight and was very bright so i denoised and toned the colour down a little. this is the same shot worked in both images, shot with the lt55 lens.

regards,
john
