2nd attempt with new camera

Recommended Posts

Following on from my post a few days ago of the crescent moon, I had a chance to go for a quarter moon on the 3rd January with the new ZWO ASI290MC on my SW120ED. A little sharper and less over processed this time, showing more real detail. I did have some odd colour banding going on that I have not figured out yet, so I have set it to greyscale which looks OK. There's so much to learn. Again kudos to Photoshop Elements for really simple stitching - it seems to adjust exposures to match as well. There was cloud scudding across the moon during the videos that does not seem to have upset anything.

Really nice image, lots of detail, nice contrast and exposure. 

How many panes were stitched together?

Thanks, Lee, that's kind of you. It was supposed to be 4, but in the end I had 7 altogether (due to some misalignment on my part) so I used all 7.
