10 day old moon north

Date of image 07/02/2017.

Hardware details: Camera: Canon 550D in 640X480 movie crop mode 60fps. ISO 200 exposure 1/60s. Telescope: SW Skymax 150 MakCass. Baader fringe killer was used and the camera was at prime focus. Mount: EQ5 Pro. The scope was focused using a Bahtinov mask on a bright star. The stack is taken from about 5 minutes of video (~18000 frames).

The details of processing are the same as the mosaic.


The image shows the far northern region of the moon. It was taken after the scope properly cooled down so the resolution is pretty good. Unfortunately it does not 'fit' in the mosaic because the image scale has changed slightly. Some lunar landmarks include: Craters Goldschmidt and Anaxagoras in the centre and half of Philolaus to the left of the image (West). Scoresby, Challis and Main craters can also be seen here. Thanks to liberation, the lunar north pole is viable just above Main.

Thanks, I use a Skywatcher Skymax 150 to record movies. I then process these movies into higher quality Lunar shots.
