Hi!

After a lot of time capturing and processing this is my first complete lunar mosaic using a DSLR. I took 180 videos using a 5'' Mak-Cass, a 2x barlow and a Canon 60Da in 640x480 video mode @60fps. Processed with Autostakkert!2, Registax, Hugin and Gimp.

I wrote a small blog post about how to create this mosaic: http://www.luisarger...-resolution-...

Thanks!

Very nice! You persevered in getting those large data files to stack...

Thank you!

The stacking of large files still fails.

Instead of stacking 18mpx images I'm stacking 640x480 videos. That was never a problem for the stacking APPs. But I would love to compare this result to stacking 200-400 complete photos from the DSLR. In theory the result should be the same or better without the need to do the Mosaic. But so far no luck doing that because I can't find a program that would go thru the frames to select the best ones and stack them.
