Moon Mosaic 14/01/2011

Post by pastafarianpriest »

Hey, I don't post here much!

This is my first attempt at a mosaic of the moon and I was really happy with the results so I thought I would post it, the conditions were a little cloudy so I was glad to get anything at all!

Image

I used RegiStax to stack 20, 500 frame avi's taken on an Imaging Source DMK 21AU04.AS with a 2x Barlow on a SkyWatcher Equinox-120 PRO ED, mounted on a CG5 mount.

Thanks, Laura :)

excellent pic. What's that straight line just on the side of Mare Imbrium (across from Archimedes)?. I'm not great on lunar features.

All the best
