These were shot on two different nights. Note the slight change in the shadow on the moon. Can't decide which lens did the best job. The first is the B300.

The 14B image looks better to me, seems to show more detail.

Did the images get she same post processing?

What were your settings? My moon pix came out poorly.

TIA Jack

The only PP I did on either picture was one bump on focus. The settings were both Aperture-priority and f8. I learned from others on this forum that that is the best way to take moon pictures. I am going to the mountains for a few days and am going to try the shots again to see if shooting on the same night and less haze makes a difference. Thanks!

To me the B300 picture looks better.

I don't think so. With f8 the pictures of my FZ3 become slightly softer than with other apertures. It's not much difference but visible in comparision.

The bestwould beto try it with different apertures.

4x teleconverter? I don't think you'll be satisfied with it.
