Luna Begins Her Second Day

Luna Begins Her Second Day

Charlie Hein - Weston FL Afocal shot taken with Sony DCR-TRV30 DV Camcorder through a 25mm Plossl eyepiece on an Orion ED80 refractor. A six minute .avi (~10000 frames) was stacked to create a base image which was then made into two copies - one concentrating on the properly exposed Lunar disk, and one strongly processed to bring out the captured Earthshine. The two copies were composited in PhotoShop to create the final output.
