And, costlier ! - with a smaller f-stop for AF focus ....


Better lenses usually cost more. Better build quality, completely weather sealed, sharper, and an extra 100 mm of reach. And further more, the focusing at 6.3 is just as fast as at 5.6.
It also plays very well with the Sigma 1.4 TC.

If the sky is clear, I'll be out with the D810 and 150-600 Sigma Sport. No tripod necessary!

They didn't tell us how to focus to infinity. On Nikon AF lenses it's difficult to set focus to infinity.

I just use auto focus.

Using Nikon's tips, I wonder what ISO would produce the best images with minimum noise where there is virtually no light pollution?

You get used to them. I have the Lee Big Stopper and I love it. I've used several kinds and the Lee has the least amount of color cast. Once you have it set up simply remove by pulling on the spring loaded button, then compose and focus your camera, turn off autofocus, put the filter back on. Figure out your shutter duration and then take the shot. Isn't the Little Stopper 5 stops? I may be wrong. I'm thinking about getting that too, but I can buy a 3 filter gel set for $60 that consists of a 1,2 & 3 stop filter for a total of 6 stops. So I will probably go that route.

You probably know that shooting the moon is the same as shooting any day lit scene. Here for the length of your lens your shutter was way too slow. I normally shoot the moon at ISO 400 1/1000 sec and about f8. to f10
I used an 80/400 auto focus. 70 /210 Vivitar Ser..1. 100/300 sears manual focus for Minolta. 70/300, EOS auto focus though it wn't focus on the EX6. I got sharp pictures with all, shooting hand held.

You don't really need a fast shutter speed for a moon shot, but you need a steady hand or good tripod.

This was shot handheld, auto focus, D810 w/ Sigma 150-600 Sport
1/250 sec. f7.1 ISO 200 600mm

Please, a bit of advice. I love shooting shore birds, both still and in flight. Many are snowy white. I shoot with a D7200 and a Nikon 200- 500 lens, that I love. But regardless of lens, I still have trouble capturing wing and feather texture without a white wash out. I try to keep the light behind me as much ss possible. I can do a good bit with PP, but more advice, sources, appreciated. Thanks in advance great UHHers.
