Moon (10-19-2019)-2j.jpg

 

This is a 3-panel mosaic taken as a wide field context image before taking a series of high resolution images of specific regions of the moon. Along the moon’s limb you can see all the way to the western shore of Oceanus Procellarum and Mare Orientale is just peeking over the edge of the horizon. For each panel I stacked 48 of 64 source images.

Thanks! This has become my primary lunar and planetary scope. For this image set I left it at f/10, but if the seeing supports it I'll stretch it out to f/30.
