Hi All. Looks like lunar mosaics are flavour of the month, so here's my offering.
I haven't done much lunar stuff - more of a DSOer - but clear sky seems to be at a premium so thought I'd give it a go. I'm pretty sure I get blurring at the edges of my full disc lunar shots due to coma, so I wanted to do a mosaic with the SW CC + 3x barlow. But I cant find a way of attaching the barlow to the CC. Any thought welcome.
So instead I used crop mode with no barlow and did a 24 pane mosaic. DSLR settings: .MOV files of 60sec duration, ISO100, 1/800th sec exposures.
Processed with PIPP, MS ICE for mosaic composite (bit of fun getting it to align - did it in 2 sub-sections) then Autostakkert (best 10%) , Avistack for wavelets (bit overdone maybe) and PS for autolevels.
Mext move is to repeat with the barlow - so thats 16 panes to each one of the 24 .... ummm, that'll be 16x24 = 384. Maybe not then!
Hope you like it - looks quite nice full size!
... and the colour corrected one:
