Moon shot - Chromatic Aberration? (nikkor 70-300 VR)
Aug 17, 2011

Hi guys!

Just bought a brand new nikkor 70-300VR and so far I´m pretty excited about
the results in daylight.

It´s full moon period here in Brazil and took some pictures with it.
Upload the picture to my desktop and opened with Capture NX (2.2.7),

At the first view, you know, WOW, but realize some colors (blue and orange) up and down respectively.

After reading some threads, suspected about chromatic aberration.

What do you think?
If yes, Is this acceptable?
What I can do to minimize this behavior?

Wondering what exactly can cause this. VR maybe?!?!

Hand held, D7000, 1/200, f6.3, 300mm, ISO 100, Center Weight, VR ON at normal position. RAW to JPG with NX2.


100% Cropped
