    This is what i did, 70-300mm with kenko 2x converter to reach 600mm (900mm, 35mm equivalent), manual focus, spot metering, shot at f/14 iso800 1/160s

    gibbous f8 1/125s ISO100
    full f8 1/250s ISO100

    This is just the guideline, best exposure might be different.

    Reference:

    M. A. Covington, Astrophotography for the Amateur, 2nd Ed. Cambridge University Press, 2004.

    For lunar photography, the Moon image size on camera sensor/film is based on actual focal length,
    the Moon image size is around 0.78mm for 85mm lens, on full frame or APS-C sensor.
