Just did a careful process from the 28th September. ZWO178m Camera. Orion 245mm F6.3 Newtonian. IR685 Filter. Celestron Ultima 2x Barlow.  Downsizing produces a very fine photographic quality that i like.

Dark and moody terminator

Same with prime focus mosaic downsizing to 50% Produces a very fine photographic quality

Great idea!
Certainly the terminator is always the place of greatest interest because the long shadows there make it much easier to see fine details.
However, at the same time, it is not an easy region to photograph, demanding from the photographer a great deal of control at the time of capture due to the high contrast that this region always has. The tendency is always to burst in some places like the crater walls facing the Sun.
It will be interesting to follow, I hope I can leave my modest contributions.
Hugs to everyone!
