Shot of the moon low in the sky, 30 frames stacked
WOW................... YOU ARE A SERIOUS PHOTOGRAPHER. LOOKS COLD UP THERE FANTASTIC
what have you done with this as it looks dull and unsharp - did you forget to process a RAW file? Mark, what is stacking by the way. I have once made a similar moonshot (still in pf) with a telephoto lens of 300mm and that one is just crispy and sharp and comes near to what one sees through a binocular.
You got my vote for the fact you got the exposure right but it is very soft.
There really is no need to stack that amount of images to create a sharp image and clearly it has not worked anyway, this is the whole reason you stack images so you can crop down and then by stacking you get a sharper image, this is generally done for far off images like planets through the telescope for example.
No need to stack the moon just get a good lens or a telescope that you can put your camera on simplesssssss.
I don't want to rain on anyone's parade here but................
Stacking is the process by which you attempt to nullify the problems associated with atmospheric turbulence. Take lots of frames ( maybe 40 - 50 FPS ) and over 60 seconds you will have several thousand stills that should be graded for clarity, stacked via mathematical algorithms and summed to produce a final image. This operation is generally not performed with a DSLR type camera but a specialist video chip that can output this kind of frame rate and fed into something like "registax".
The very notion ( to my knowledge ) that you can take accurate lunar photo's on a DSLR is fanciful.......... at best.
Sorry, I meant to add....we need to know the focal length here GT
