    I like using the compare view when sorting moon pictures especially. I take my moon shots with the D850 and an 800mm Ai-S manual focus lens (because its $13,000 less expensive than the AF-S version) and focus is very tricky. So it’s helpful to zoom into the shots side by side to see which is sharper, which I thought should have been noted in this post. But, it does not seem to be possible to assign a rating while sorting through images which I would find useful. Here is a LINK to one of my recent super white blood wolf blue moons, or actually, just a couple of days before because totally round is less interesting than having a rough shadow on one side… it turned out nicely. I think I only did about a 7 on clarity, btw.

      Glenn, You can rate and flag images in Compare View – just make sure that the highlight (the thin white line) is around the image that you want to apply the rating to!
