75% Waxing gibbous - 2nd Imaging (Still a rookie)

Recommended Posts

From 30th October 2017. Using a Sky & Moonglow filter that was included with the collection, I didn't know what to expect out of it. (I had previously used a moon filter that left a green tint to everything - the detail was there, but the colour was flat.) This filter didn't cut out as much of the colour, despite having a mild pink hue. I'm still familiarising myself with everything, but I'm looking into things as I go.

This image is a combination of 7 exposures at various speeds to allow for detail and contrast using a Canon Rebel T5i (gifted to me, so I'm not complaining about a free DSLR) and my Celestron Nexstar 127SLT. I aligned the images in Photoshop CC, and adjusted using Lightroom and the Camera Raw filter to help pull out the colours. I'm excited to keep experimenting with things, and happy to submit this image for review.

      No extraordinary images for this lunation, because of the turbulence and the use of infrared filters.
      Here are some images of the 24th, I am working on those of the 25th which will be of the same style.
      Clear skies.

      Just a quick enquiry ... was strolling the lunar surface on Iroc and bumped into this area of florescence on the lunar surface.

      Any thoughts anyone? (Co-ordinates at bottom of screenshot if you want to get better definition from original website).
      Was struggling to see clear heavy impact crater that would account for the wide spread of surface debris?
      Didn't think it was image flare - not expert on that so could be wrong - but noticed on RHS there appears to be traces of surface debris scatter?
      It almost seems like someone threw a very low velocity ‘flour bomb’ at the surface of the Moon?🤨
      Have there been mineral studies done on these areas of exceptional lunar florescence? ... I tapped the phrase into SGL’s Search ... but surprisingly it came up with ‘no results’??
