Help! Need sharper pictures!
1

Group, I had the perfect opportunity to use my G1X Mark II to take pictures of the "Super Moon" the other day.  But none were as sharp as I wanted!  Even shooting in Raw mode with no digital zoom... I used a good tripod in all cases, with a 2 second delay.  In this example, I stopped it down to f16 and a long exposure (but I tried a hundred other combinations, none better than this).  The auto-ISO is the leading candidate for "things I didn't think to control"... but is that all there is?  How would YOU get a nice sharp shot in this circumstance given the limited focal length?  This also applies to my landscape pictures... they're just not as sharp as I would like.  Help?  Thanks, Jon.

This is a jpg condensed from raw.  Raw or JPG, the city is just plain fuzzy.  The shooting properties of the raw source picture follow...

The properties of the raw picture from which the above photo is derived.
