  1. Hi, cloudy nights, moon too low to image, so time to hone the processing skills a bit. I repocessed my most recent Clavius image. the difference as opposed to my previous imaging was that I used 1,5x drizzle in AS!3 (and the first time I got AS!3 to work on my mac). other processing is still the same. Click the thumbnail to open the technical file and compare both images. I'm quite curious for your opinions. I belive the details captured are much tighter and better defined in the new revision. Kind regards, Wouter.
  2. Below a movie showcasing my images from september. Sit back and enjoy. Feel free to share your comments. Clear skies, Wouter.
  3. Sweet image. I'm not sure wetehr JPEG or PNG makes too much of a difference. but this is a nice picture anyway. Wouter.
  4. A lovely image. Well done!
  5. Hi, Nice first effort. I've made a couple of large moon mosaics already and it is important to first scan the surface and set your exposure right for the brightest parts. And don't touch it afterwards. So use the same setting for the entire surface. Areas that are a bit dark can be brightened at the cost of a bit of noise. But saturated parts can not be recovered in any way. I usually make sure that the brightest parts in my movies are not brighter than 80% saturation or so. This also give some headroom for sharpening, which often also can result in clipped highlights. Wouter.
  6. Single panes. Though the Mare Nectaris one and the Rupes Altaï image could be combined to a two-pane moasic. Wouter.
  7. Hi, Below the last few iamges made in September. Click thumbnails to view larger image. Posidonius Mare Nectaris Rupes Altaï, Fracastorius, Piccolomini Enjoy, feel free to share your comments. Wouter.
  8. Sweet image, and indeed, the terminator is always worth exploring. Even some fetures are worth imaging when the sun is high above the lunar horizon. Albedo features like ray systems and micro impacts in mare are interesting when the sun is high.
  9. A lovely image. Well done, especially for a first lunar image. Wouter.
  10. I'm all in for highly saturated colors. Second oen for me. Well done. Wouter.
  11. That's Catena Davy. it's a series of impacts. Most likely caused by a meteorite that's been ripped apart by gravitation. Comaprable to what happenend with Shoemaker levy 9 when it fell apart when pulled in by Jupiter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_(crater) Wouter.
  12. Hi, This image of the Triesnecker area shows some very nice examples of rimae systems. Rima Hyginus Rimae Triesnecker Rima Ariadaeus. The image was aquired with a CFF CC300f/20 - ASI 174MM - Baader orange filter. This is a single panel for which 250 out of 2500 were stacked. Click the thumbnal to view at full res. Enjoy, feel free to share your opinions, thoughts. Wouter.
  13. Hi, My entry for this challenge. The Apollo 15 landing site in the Apennines mountains. Appollo 15 landed between Rima Hadley and Mons Hadley. It's a large image, best viewed at full res. Enjoy.
  14. Really really nice image. Great work Wouter.
  15. Some mighty nice images. Well done Sir. Wouter.
