Really nice, Con. I was wondering why you were posting the same image twice before I realised this one was from the next night.
Thanks Andrew. I only get a small window for capturing the moon at my current place where I've polar aligned my tripod and don't want to move it, but we went for an evening walk and came back and the sky looked beautiful and the moon was right in the window so I just had to capture it.
Are you using filters to produce these colours, or are they solely done in Gimp?
When the colour balance is correct, I just turn saturation up to 10. That's it.
Haha, well I'm already addicted to the planetary imaging. The beauty of the moon is it takes me just 5 minutes to capture, stack, and process, and the thing is up in the sky year round The lunar eclipse was a bit of an imaging disappointment for me without the right equipment too.
