This was taken through my my Celestron C8, with the .63x reducer/flattener, UV/IR Cut filter, ASI533MC-Pro, using lucky imaging.  I shot 10 1-minute videos at 1080p, and then processed them all exactly the same in AutoStakkert, Registax and Pixinsight.  Then, I used Microsoft ICE to assemble the mosaic and final touchups were done in LightRoom.

Good effort, wrong forum. :O) Don't worry, it will get moved.

 

Why did you need 10 panels? 4 should do the job.

I thought so too.
Why the 1080p when 533 is 3008x3008 pixels? Ah, it could be a AA Pro limitation.

Apparently the guidance at the top of the M&MPI forum is escaping too many lunar imagers these days:

 

A reminder. It says:

Posts about imaging our Moon should go in the target-oriented "Lunar Observing & Imaging" forum.

 

This post has been moved, but since there were already replies, it will also be visible from M&MPI.

It's possible he wanted to also upload the full resolution videos to youtube or something, which is perfectly acceptable. If I wanted to do something like that I would make a cropped video from the full resolution videos using PIPP, though. Or he could be worried about field curvature, but as under-sampled as he would be, it's a non-issue in my experience. I don't even worry much about field curvature in my reduced C8 with my 2.4 micron pixel 183, much less the 533.

Thanks.  I used 10 panels, to make sure I got everything.  In the past, I've had areas that were missing.

The highest res video for for 533 and AA is 1080p.  That's the limitation.  I should have used firecapture on my laptop.
