Quarter Moon from August 7, 2019.
Video is sped up 500%

Shot on Canon EOS M with Magic Lantern Raw 2.5K Upscaled to 4K.

Lens:
  • Canon FD 135mm f3.5 at f5.6
  • Canon EF 80-200 f2.8 L at f7.1

Effective focal ranges being 1080mm (135mm on crop sensor and 5x internal crop) and 1600mm (200mm on crop sensor and 5x internal crop).

I tried using a 2x teleconverter with the 135mm, but I couldn't get it to infinity focus with it on. I do have a 1000mm telescope that I need to assemble. Looking forward to using that on Aug 15th Full Moon rise along the Houston Skyline. Hopefully it'll be a clear day then. In the mean time, this is what I captured last night.

Very nice! By the way, the x5 crop gives not a real x5, as far as I know, more like x2,5-x3, so the resulting focals are in the range 600-900mm.

Are you sure? When I enable the 3x crop mode, it's less cropped than when I'm in 2.5K which on the bottom says it goes into 5x view..

Yes, in the viewfinder it is more cropped than in the final shooting. A 1600mm equivalent focal length would make the moon fill the entire frame height.

Is there a way to view what actually gets recorded at 2.5K in the viewfinder as opposed to the 5x?
