Re: Not Interpolation Re: 1200mm: Digital Teleconverter

excellent examples, Jim and exactly what I was looking for!

The planets of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn might be of more interest with x2 DTC.  I saw an image on here where you could clearly see Cassini's Division in Saturn's rings using x2 DTC on the 75-300 lens, but not without x2 DTC (or maybe just barely without it, but clearly with it.)  I think you should be able to see the Martian Ice Cap as well as the bands on Jupiter with x2 DTC also.

But a question I had was, what do you think is the best utilization of x2 DTC.....using L size 16 mp or  M size 5 mp (or 8 mp), and also does the compression rate of JPG matter for x2 DTC or does DTC do its magic before compression is done (that would be better.)

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961
