    Right of the camera no post processing :) I used exposer of -3, shutter speed of 1/400 and ISO of 100 to 200, I think 100 on this shot, and focus was all the way up

    Indeed it was :D but If you got 1020 the lens would not be needed, well you could, it would make it even better hehe and thank you

    Well, not exactly. Here's a shot taken with the L1020 without a lens attachment using ProShot (back then, ProShot was taking photos that were less sharp or softer than those from Lumia Camera and the L1020 was in Cyan):

    moon.png

    Not as sharp as the one from your L930 with DIY lens... and this is why I'm looking for a telephoto lens attachment for my L1020.

    Here's what it looks like after some post processing in an attempt to clarify the details on the Moon - still not the same:
    moon-post-processed.png

    Note: The original photos are not attached.

    I may need to take another photo of the Moon with the same L1020 but now with Denim and updated Lumia Camera and ProShot apps but still without a lens attachment.

    Try using a tripod and use lumia camera or 1shot, i find proshot a bit crap compared to the other two but they look nice, did you use raw or high res? http://themobilephotographyblog.com/...-nokia-808%29/

    That sounds like to much exposure and and slow shutter speed, i can get a nice shot without the lens attached.. just makes it even nicer with it, and depending where you are the moon might look bigger to you so the lens would not be needed, my moon was like a dot

    Try using a tripod and use lumia camera or 1shot, i find proshot a bit crap compared to the other two but they look nice, did you use raw or high res? Add filters to your Lumia 1020 (or Nokia 808)
    Using ProShot, I had the "34MP" output resolution (16:9 ratio) with 10.0x live digital zoom. Here's the tricky part - 34MP is the output of the sensor itself without digital zooming, where any form of digital zooming would be taking a smaller (and lower resolution) portion out of that 34MP at 16:9 aspect ratio. However, ProShot still gave me a "34MP" image even if it was digitally zoomed in at 10.0x magnification. I've talked to the developer about this a few months back and he said that the app intentionally saves a larger version of the cropped area of the sensor as if it was using the entire sensor was being used. So, if my digital zooming was only using (for example) a 5-MP section of the sensor, ProShot will still save the resulting 5-MP photo as a 34-MP photo, similar to simply increasing the resolution of an image in PhotoShop without really increasing the quality of the photo. His justification was something like, "Users were complaining about the output resolution not being 'full resolution' when zoomed in". My response was that that was ignorance on the part of the "photographer".

    So to answer your question, not sure if ProShot can output "DNG" types of images, but the output was a JPG file (a pseudo 34MP image).

    I will try using a tripod, possibly a motorized one designed for astronomy, and then force the OIS off (possible with Lumia Camera by setting the focus manually) - I need the OIS off because the lens gets slightly left behind by the rotation of the earth at that levels of magnification with the telescopic attachment causing a slight blur in long exposure images... or I could simply use shorter exposure times.

    P.S.
    Installed then uninstalled 1Shot before - don't remember why. I'll probably try it again and see how it compares against ProShot.

    Update:
    Just tried 1Shot now. First impressions: Aside from it's fast (under 1.5 seconds, which is similar to Camera360 Sight) start up time, there seems to be nothing special about it. Focusing time and quality are the same with Lumia Camera, Microsoft Camera, etc. White balance is the same. Detail recovery at high levels of magnification seems to be the same, though this needs further testing (just like my previous tests elsewhere). The zoom control, however, needs a lot of improvement - since when did moving my fingers away from each other mean zooming out-then-in?

    Honestly, the 1020's "zoom" capability doesn't mean much at those distances. You'd still need a lens on it.

    Sorry if i hijack or something, but i suck in photography even if i love it so much. I would like to teach a little(lot) mkre about wp camera settings and use my 1520 in right way. Do you mind writing tutorial or link me (or pm me) if there is tutorial online?
    Thanks in advance!

    Ahh i see that's a clever idea with proshot did not know that, and the reason for fast shutter speed is because moon is bright, like real bright so much so i had turn my exposure down, if i had the raw image, deleted since then but it shows you the image with 0 exposure and it looks like the sun, but like magic turn down exposure in the raw editor and the moon comes back with all its detail, the image i got there is about 3mp or less, its very low but the took about 40 shots to get it right, changing the sliders to get it right, most were like yours at first, i just happen to get it right and i was using a tripod so no shake, its all about how much light you let in to much its to bright, to little its bury

    My reasons for liking 1shot is because of continous focusing great for birds ect, tap to capture, you can change it from pinch to zoom or drag, go in to the settings

    Yes, I had to adjust the brightness (exposure value) to get the shots of the moon I posted. At first the moon looked like a bright white ball reflecting second-hand sunlight. I'll be ordering a telephoto attachment (the one that grips onto the sides of the phone) and see how that performs - the L1020 "lossless" zoom is great for terrestrial subjects but not so for those beyond.
