Panel 1 - Copernicus to Erathosthenes in colors.  Processed in Wavesharp.  Colors brought forward after deconvolution both in AstraImage.  Vibrancy boost of 100% then an additional 25% PRIOR to denoise.  Denoise was about 20 for luminance but only about 7 on chrominence or it does strange things to the global color pattern.

Note the full chip panels are 500 frames the reduced FOV panels are 10,000 frames.  All started as 25% stacks.

Panel 2 - Aristarchus - I really like how this one turned out.  You might start to think I have a clue!!

Panel 7 - Not sure I've ever imaged this one before.  Must be a favorable libration.  Bailly

The ray arcing down from the upper right matches a ray from Tycho found on my full disk images with the 12".  It didn't show up until I went with color.

 

Who said there wasn't interesting stuff to image on the nearly full Moon.  Oh yeah, it was ME!!  I stand corrected.  Bear with me as I struggle to learn how to do colors as well as Borodog or Itaku.

Thank you.  This night came out great but two nights later I couldn't get the color balance right.  I think it was overhead as opposed to the two nights later when the Moon was only about 45 degrees above the horizon.

Extracting and enhancing the color of the Moon is a journey into the Unknown - you never know how it will end. That's the beauty of it :-)
