I took this shot with my 18-135 kit lens (not having anything else as I thought I was going to be doing sunset) only really expecting the foreground as an OOF silhouette, the sky dark and dismal and the moon, well much like a shot I posted here this time last year.
However I found it possible to extract an image I am quite pleased with and actually showing for once more than the naked eye could see rather than less, BUT
Especially in the top left corner there is some banding a bit like ripples on a pond surface which I can't quite get rid of - Nikon technical say they can't see them so the poll is to see who can, it does not seem to go away with different monitor calibrations as Nikon suggested
The real question though is (assuming you can see it), what is the cause? I noticed for the 1st time that there is now in NX2 a 'camera & lens corrections'>axial colour aberration. Rather little info on exactly what that might be or do, but http://spie.org/x32840.xml hints at coatings on a cheapo lens being a possible.
Anyone have any ideas please?
