I just got my Vaonis Stellina telescope earlier this month, and today is Mid-Autumn Festival.

To commemorate the occasion, I took a photo of the moon (details on AstroBin)

As this image was post-processed with Topaz, moving from EAA  to the Lunar Imaging and Observing Forum. (EAA captures are limited to non-post processed pics)

The image from my post is an original and not processed.  If it were, I would have specified it as such like I did on AstroBin.

I am moving this post back to EAA since the image was not post processed as described by the OP.

That was not clear from your reference to your Astrobin Link in your first post.

 

However, you are correct that if you are posting the original non-post processed image, it can stay in this forum.

Thanks, I was wondering about that too - this is my FIRST time taking an astro photos of the moon using an EAA telescope - it turns out I took this photo while the moon was still rising at an altitude of 12.1°, hence the less-than-ideal seeing condition due to air turbulence.  I found this out by reviewing the sequences of photos, and noticed how the shapes and shadows shifted a little from photo to photo as an obvious effect of air turbulence / atmospheric interference.

I took another photo ~4 hours later when the moon was at 37.5°, and the seeing has much improved, see attached.

Note: both images are originals and not processed.
