Another full disc image of the moon, taken on April 29th with my Canon 700D, Meade f/6.3 reducer, a 15mm spacer and C9.25" SCT which just accommodates the full moon on the chip. I tried a similar setup previously with my 6" SCT but the resolution available with the larger aperture is significantly greater. 

 

16/20 full sized frames stacked in AS!3, sharpened in Registax, post processed in Photoshop with the size reduced to fit on CN. Since I don't have a large sensor astro-camera, I think this is my best method for capturing the full disc, there is a good amount of detail available at a smaller scale without going to extreme lengths of mosaicing a lot of small frames together.

That's a great photo. I'm just getting back into AP and would be more than satisfied with that image.
