Hey Everyone:

I started out planning to image the entire moon in one at the full 2500mm focal length of my scope but I had no idea that is would take so many panels. I would have never gotten all of it completed before the moon reached the tree line in the west. Each panel consist of over 7000 frame of which the best 75% were chosen in AutoStakkert!
