Lunar photography OMD EM5 movement artifacts
The OMD EM5 Mark 2 high resolution mode operates by taking multiple images and simultaneously pixel shifting the sensor resulting in a 9216 by 6912 pixel 100 MB high resolution image. Any movement in the scene or vibration in the mount will result in movement artifacts. One culprit could be the soft grassy ground the mount was sitting on or the mount is just not stable enough however the technique works.To improve the final result, multiple images need to be taken and stacked.
