Please help me pre-plan Venus almost kissing the moon Thursday PM Feb 27

I live west of Atlanta and weather looks like it will be favorable for shooting around 7:45 to 8:20 PM EST and I've got a good shot to the west/ southwest in a dark location.

I have the following Canon equipment or that will fit Canon:

5D4

80-D

Canon 100-400

Tamron 150-600

1.4 and 2.0 Teleextenders that I've never used

Questions??

1. Use 5D4 for better resolution but 1.0x and probably more pixels or 80-D for 1.5x crop factor?

2. Will in all likelyhood use the Tamron 150-600 with a tripod and manual focus on the moon.

3. PLEASE help me with shutter speed, f/stop (within limit of lens) and ISO suggestions. This will be a GREAT help since I'm an astro newbie.

4. Thoughts on trying to use 1.4 or 2.0x teleextender for this photo shoot?

Thanks in advance,

Kent
