The Moon with 150 mm zoom objective

150 mm – 5 x 1/400 s – f/10.0 – ISO 200
Pre-processed with DxO PhotoLab 3. Stacked and edited with Affinity Photo.

I recently purchased the very reasonably priced M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40‑150mm F4‑5.6 R zoom objective. I got mainly for terrestrial subjects but gave it a quick test in moon photography. The image is better than using a smartphone and binoculars, but no match for the telescope. With 150 mm focal length there is no need for tracking to keep the target in sight and camera on a tripod is much faster to set up than a telescope or binoculars.
