Hi guys!

 

The weather was perfect for a few hours last night, and since i couldn't do DSO i took a look at the moon.

 

The image i made of 8 different videos shot at 7500 focal length. Processed in autostackkert, registax and PS.

 

C&C very welcome :D

Very nice picture.
How did you get 7.5k mm focal length?

Excellent image, one of my favourite areas on the Moon.

I was wondering the same thing - this really doesn't LOOK like 7.5m focal length - I would be expecting a much more "zoomed" appearance...

Hi guys and thanks :D

 

My focal length is normally 1000mm to get more, i used my 2,7 barlow together with my 5x powermate. My coma corrector takes a little the other way.

 

So, the individual videos are much more "zoomed" in, but the final image is composed of eight seperate videos, (mosaic) i did this to cover a larger area and still get loads of detail :)

 

Hope i'm making senseflowerred.gif

Nicely detailed! You got a great view of those rilles, lava ridges, albedo changes across the mare, and the stepped wall of crater Schiaparelli above Aristarchus near the terminator. I particularly like the thin and sinuous Marius Rille. Nicely done mosaic, too! Congratulations!
