Hadn't imaged the moon for far too long & found myself w time and a cooled down Mak 7" f/10 on the night of the 23rd.

Did both visual & some captures.  Wow visual at that aperture is amazing (next time w BVs!).

A long time since processing lunar, so v rusty & trying a few different things.

Thanks @neil phillips - that means a lot coming from someone with your skills 🙌🏾

And concur, those are the ones I like the most - all the other ones I used a more experimental ImPPG approach (& also colour tone approach in Gimp) but looking at them side-by-side, 3 & 4 are just nicer than the others.  Ah well, it's always good to try new approaches even if its only to discover that sometimes when you kiss a frog it stays a frog 😂

I don't care what anyone says it's the most majestic object in the night sky, i can remember when i was a kid looking up at it letting my tiny sci fi imagination run wild with thoughts of flying saucers, cylons & forever wars wondering if there was any chance any of it could one day be true. 

I still feel the nostalgia on occasion when i am out alone miles from civilisation with nothing but the moon for company.. That is until that thing moving just out of sight puts the wind up you enough that you tune in to your bat capable hearing & snap back to reality..
