Taken last month using a StellaMira 80mm ED refractor with a Baader 500nm Bandpass (green) filter and a ZWO ASI183MM Pro camera.

 

This is a 33% resizing from the original full frame to get under the 1200 pixel height restriction on CN. Image capture with SharpCap Pro, image processing with AutoStakkert! (best 1000 of 4000 frames), Registax (wavelet sharpening), and Photoshop 2022 (tweaks and photo frame).

 

Here is a link to my CN gallery where you can view a 1:1 scale crop (1600 x 1200 pixels) that was taken from the below full-frame capture.

C&C welcomed and thanks for the interest.

Here is a 1:1 scale crop of just the southern highlands taken from the full-disk image as shown above.

 

The below image and the one from my gallery cover about 75% of the terminator from the full disk of the gibbous moon.

Here is a 1:1 scale crop of the northern terminator taken from the full-disk image. This completes the entire terminator from the full-disk image (center terminator in my gallery, north and south terminator crops shown in posts #2 and #3).
