Lunar Eclipse Shooting Combo Z9 Vs Z50 w/ 500PF Vs 100-400S

Which one would be optimal?

Z9+500PF on a Tracker(Star Adventure 2i) internally programmed Intervalometer

@500mm Focal lenght, 45 Mb; with the 1.4 TCE III - 700mm, 45Mb gives the most Pixels on the moon but maybe the least sharpness

or

Z50 + 100-400 S Manual tracking

@600mm equivalent Focal lenght, 20 Mb

or

Z9+100-400 S on a Tracker(Star Adventure 2i) internally programmed Intervalometer

@400mm Focal Lenght, 45Mb

or

Z50 + 500PF Manual Tracking

@750mm Focal lenght, 20 Mb; with the 1.4 TCE III - 1050mm gives the most Focal lenght but at 20Mb not sure if the Pixels on the moon are as good, but maybe the least sharpness?

I also have the 1.4TCE III for the 500PF but I tend to think the naked lens would be Sharper....

I received the 100-400 yesterday and it seems that it is sharper than 500PF all else equal.

Any input would be appreciated....
