at least, they are down her in Dorset, with Jupiter currently to the left and just above the Moon. Bright enough that have been able shoot both hand-held with my EM-5 + 75-300 at 300mm and the exposure was ISO200 with 1/100th sec (could have been better maybe at 1/800th but it only needed a slight PP exposure tweak), f8.
(I've just checked, Jupiter needed 1/500sec under these settings)
Obviously it would be better of a tripod or even a monopod but I have good detail in the terminator and the rest isn't bad.
The system even auto-focused on Jupiter (I know, I didn't believe it either but it kept on doing that despite my disbelief)
Can't see any of the moons tonight but it is possible (just) to see some banding on the disc of Jupiter
This is a crop of one of the hand-held Jupiter, enlarged 4X in post-processing but I think it should be possible to get a sense of the detail I can see in the original

Yep, great view of the moon tonight. Have been out and taken a couple of shots. Tripod used. I found getting the right exposure is not easy as I thought it would be. A lot of trial and error, mostly error.
A good start point Martin is to take the first shot in aperture priority, spot metering (with the spot on the moon) and see what it shows for the correct exposure, then use that as the start point when you turn over to manual exposure for your final "perfect" shots
Cheers for the heads up on that. I will give it a go tomorrow night, providing the clouds stay away.
