It seems to have been a good night for the Moon last night.

 

1100 EdgeHD + ASI678MC. 40% stack of 5,000 frames. Blind deconvolution.

 

Please click on this thumbnail to see the full image on Astrobin.

Full scale crop of Tycho and Clavius. But again, please, please, please check out the full image on Astrobin.

Impressive detail. I feel like I'm in orbit around the moon.

I wonder what people who think the moon (and planets) are 'luminaries' would think if they saw these images?  belushi.gif

WOW!

 

Do you have the ability to run the blind decon locally now? Or do you send the images to Dave for that step?

Fabulous!

 

No need for me to kill myself doing lunar or planetary imaging when I can just enjoy yours with one mouse click wink.gif

 

EDITED to say it frees up lots of time and hard disk space for EAA.

Excellent, and the Astrobin version is breathtaking, definitely worth viewing! Where in your workflow is the deconvolution applied?

 

Thanks and cheers, Allan

Thank you, Michael. I sent the other image, of Frigoris to Hadley, to David Biggs, who is developing the deconvolution software I used, and he jokingly asked if it was taken by Orion. ;O)

They would no doubt see right through the CGI.

Yes, I am running the software locally. Development is proceeding apace.

Heh. Thank you very much for the kind words, Max. But there's no satisfaction like making your own images, so don't give up on my account!

Thank you!

 

I deconvolve the image straight out of Autostakkert. For these images I stacked to 32bit FITS and deconvolved the luminance channel only.

Outstanding images, sharp not overly processed well done!  Thanks for sharing with us.

Outstanding, Borodog! Every time I zoom in more, there’s more detail to see! My little tablet doesn’t do your images the justice they deserve. I need a bigger screen. Thanks for sharing!

I’m super interested in your blind deconvolution sharpening routine. My approach to deconvolution is also blind in a way, but that’s just because I don’t really know what I’m doing. I just fiddle with the sliders until it looks like I’ve gone too far, then I back it off a bit. Once development of the software is complete, will it be available for purchase?

It will be available; whether for free or purchase I’m not sure. I kind of hope it’s for purchase because I WANT to pay him some money for it!

Excellent, I’m eagerly awaiting its release! Will you announce its availability in your Blind deconvolution in planetary imaging thread?

I think you've come close to the quality of detail people get with 14 inches here, and when you add color and a wide frame to it, the effect is staggering.
