I got these two moon photos Saturday night, but the planets not so much. I have a Tamron 400/4 with the 1.4x and 2x Adaptall converters and a Nikkor 300/2.8 AFS with the Nikon 1.4x TC. The third photo is a composite of Jupiter and Saturn taken with the 400 with both TCs on it. It's heavily cropped, not terribly sharp, and has a ton of coma around Jupiter. I compare this with teh shot of Jupiter that Jim got with the P900 and I wonder what I'm doing wrong. I also tried shooting Mars Saturday night with multiple different lens / TC combinations, but all I got was either a bleached white ball with an orange fringe or an orange ball with a darker orange fringe. Am I expecting too much out of my equipment? The last photo (the little one) is a deep crop from a shot of one of the stars in Orion's belt and there seems to be some detail in it unless that's some kind of artifact.
