Taken one day ago and about six hours before the official full moon phase, this season's Hunter's Moon as imaged using a Celestron C90 (90mm aperture Maksutov-Cassegrain) and a ZWO ASI178MM Cool camera with a Baader Long Pass 610nm red filter. The Hunter's Moon is the first full moon after the Harvest Moon whereas the latter is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox (in the northern hemisphere).

 

This is a six panel mosaic that was created with Microsoft's Image Composite Editor (ICE). Image capture using SharpCap Pro with post processing in AutoStakkert! (best 768 of 2000 frames for each panel), Registax (wavelet sharping), Affinity Photo (clarity, levels, gamma), MS ICE (mosaic), and Photoshop 2021 (tweaks and photo frame).

 

Thanks for looking and C&C welcomed.
