Moon on Christmas Eve


Recommended Posts

The moon from Christmas Eve at about 76% full, a waxing gibbous.

40x exposures at 1/200 seconds at ISO800. Taken with a Canon 600D and SkyMax 127mm near Preston, Lancs UK.

A stack of 40 frames stacked in AS!3. Then sharpened, colour balanced and reduced noise in Photoshop v21. A first attempt at saturating the image to show the mineral compositions of various regions. Duplicated the layer and set blending mode to luminosity, increased saturation on the lower layer than flattened the image. Didn't want to oversaturate but perhaps could have gone for a little more saturation.
