Hey all, before shooting Jupiter I decided to kill some time. And whats a better time killer than the moon? I applied my new imaging regieme to the moon and I hope you like how the came out.

I usually use the crop feature in my lunar shots to get rid of those black edges.

Nice images.  I know that you have mentioned in some of your planetary posts that you have been experimenting with different processing schemes.  It appears that you may have also adjusted some of your lunar processing (and in a good way!), because in my opinion these are among the better lunar images that I have seen from you.  It is easy to overdo the processing of lunar images to produce a garish result, but your images here look quite natural, and with good detail.  Well done.

You want to know the crazy thing? These are close to the capture setting for my planetary images. And the same wavelets

Interesting, although probably very user specific.  When I used Registax for my lunar images, I always only used a bare minimum of wavelets, usually only touching the first two sliders, and never using any sharpening or denoise adjustments.  Whereas for planets, the adjustments were much more complicated.  

 

Fwiw, I still think you are unnecessarily reducing your field of view by using the 3x barlow, without any increase in resolution over what you would get with a 2x.  F/20 is already adequately sampled for the ASI224.  On planets the FOV reduction won't matter, but for the Moon, larger is almost always more aesthetic.  But we can agree to disagree.

They are fantastic images by the way.
