Blows me away. I could see myself on approach in a craft about now, and this is what I'd expect to see! Now where to land...great picture, again, of another mineral moon👍!

Continued clear skies, Ralph😁

Thanks! I investigated after your heads up, and it turns out it was my fault - I'd been clipping the lowest bits in order to decrease file size for this forum's size restrictions of 500kb and for imgur's size limits at 5MB, but that was doing more harm than just lowering the jpeg quality further.

Thanks! I tried with Astraimage and basically the half sized 32 bit colour image clipped when I sharpened it my normal way, and the full sized image at 5000x5000 pixels in 32 bit colour makes it crash on load every time for me, so that wasn't a solution, but your heads up had me thinking about the terminator and paid more attention to what step it was that was ruining it.
