Waning Gibbous Moon with Celestron NexStar 102GT (medium)

Taken on the morning of June 20, 2022 using a Celestron NexStar 102GT and a ZWO ASI178MM camera. This is a three panel mosaic that was stitched using Microsoft's Image Composite Editor (ICE).

I used a stacked set of Baader 610nm Long Pass and Contrast Booster filters to produce a bandpass between approximately 610nm and 690nm (to help with this scope's chromatic aberration). Image capture with SharpCap Pro, image processing using Autostakkert! (best 1000 of 3000 frames), Registax (wavelet sharpening), ICE (mosaic), and Photoshop 2022 (tweaks and photo frame).
