48% Moon – January 2018

I’ve done a few full moon processes recently and, as much as I enjoy both observing and imaging the full moon, a lot of surface detail is washed out. Imaging the moon at other times, however, is a different story.

As usual for my lunar imaging, I used Sharpcap’s new “seeing monitor” (beta version currently) to select higher quality frames. The videos were limited to 1000 frames and then stacked in Autostakkert! 3. From there, I stitched the mosaic together using Microsoft’s Image Composire Editor before sharpening and saturating colour areas in Photoshop.

I’ve put this image in for printing onto aluminium and hopefully it looks as good as it does here!
