First color Moon

Recommended Posts

My first try out at processing a color moon image (produced from a stacked image taken afocally from an AVI with a small digital camera and through my Tasco scope)

From other images I've seen, I think the colors have come out quite well but as this is the first time I've tried this so I cant be sure. Comments welcome

Personally I would prefer less saturated, more natural colours. I can distinguish purplish and yellowish tints on the moon, but they are not nearly as saturated as your shot

OK, perhaps I pushed the saturation too high. I was trying to use the Galileo images from my link as a reference point but maybe i over did it - does anyone have some good reference point images in color they can suggest?
