Hi,

Below some color moon images. The first is a 6-panel mosaic, made using FLT132 and ASI 224MC. Taken @ f/7 this is a rather low resolution image. 

Image was combines using Adobe Photoshop Photomerge

The other images are parts of the large mosaic I posted earlier. I used the colors of the color full disc image. So these are IR-RGB.

Rima Hyginus region: Including also triesnecker and Rimae Triesnecker.

Posidonius, and the rim of Mare Serenitatis.

I guess I'm finally getting the hang of colorizing my high res images, with low res color data.

Next would tbe to get higher res color data. But that would require an ADC as even in these images some dispersion is creeping in.

 

Enjoy the images. Feel free to share your thoughts.

Clear skies,

Wouter.

Lovely images. The coloured craters seem to bring them to life. :)

Great images Wouter. Very nice work. Those mares look so smooth it just calls out to have a something drop into them.

Beautiful images, Wouter. In the close-ups, especially Mare Nectaris, the enhanced colours are very becoming!

Great work!

Hi,

I got in touch with a French amateur specialized in this kind of imaging. He pointed out to me that the colour balance was not quite right yet and gave me some pointers to get better results. The result is quite stunning if I say so myself. Geting colour balance right allowed for more strikig colour contrast. I redid one of the above images.

Some may like it some may not. But the colours are quite correct. Though for some maybe a bit over the top. I however am rather happy.

Enjoy the image.

Wouter.

Bit extreme for my taste, I have to admit.  Love the images with the less "in your face" colouring though.

Hi Wouter,

Your last image is excellent. How did you achieve the better balance in the colours in your last image? I am working on a similar image to yours though at a much smaller resolution.

thank you for sharing

I use the camera raw filter in photoshop. It allows for easy adjustment of both colour temperature as well as colour balance.

Thanks Wouter,

I am not a great fan of photoshop and their fees but will look into that. Clear skies!
