Very nice. Nice to see an image from the AW1 rather than another horror story, too!

Congratulations! I did not manage to get such good shots of the moon with my J3 + Sigma 1.4X EX APO DG + Nikon 70-300 mm VR.

Excellent detail. The 300 PF is amazing with any N1 series camera but especially the current generation N1's.

Thanks for the comments all. Yes, while the 300PF is great across the whole frame on a DX body, one really is using the very best sweet spot on a Nikon 1 body and with a TC. The MTF speaks to that. (It is even more squeezed toward the top of the chart than for the legendary 300/2.8, but then that lens might be just as excellent when stopped down to f/4.)

Quality of moon images are of course highly dependent on atmospheric conditions, best with moon high in the sky. I suspect conditions are going to deteriorate here in interior Alaska once it gets colder and inversion layers start to take their toll.
