Tonight I was playing with my 2 2X teleconverters I got from KEH. I used the Sony NEX-5N with 300 f/4, TC301, and Kiron MC7 2X. The image is not cropped. I also shot the moon with the 300 and TC301 for a FL of 600mm. Is the IQ of 1200 better than cropping the 600mm image? From my observation, I say no-they're about the same. But it was a fun experiment. It was just about impossible to frame the moon in the center. And even if I did, it would move so fast lol.
