Last Tuesday night I imaged two overlapping regions of the Moon using my 8-inch Celestron EdgeHD, ZWO ASI 174MM camera, EFW-mini filter wheel, and a TeleVue 3X Barlow at an effective focal ratio of about F/30. Four 5,000 frame AVI files were recorded through a Astronomik 642nm infrared pass filter, then combined into 10,000 frame AVI's in PIPP before 2,000 frames were stacked. The images were then sharpened in Registax wavelets before being assembled into a mosaic. Other regions of the moon were imaged in the same manner, with 1,500 or 2,000 frames stacked to yield the final images. The wider area scenes were recorded with a 2X TeleVue Barlow rather than the 3X. The panes for the mosaic were recorded at the full resolution of 1936X1216 pixels, the crater Copernicus at 912X912 pixels.

This image of the craters Tycho and Clavius was stacked from two 5,000 frame AVI files with an original resolution of 1936X1216 pixels.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't have a webpage to which I could give you a link. I've been posting my photos here or in my Facebook page.
