Moon Mosaic

Postby Aratus » Sun Dec 04, 2016 10:20 pm

A mosaic of 8 images stitched together of tonight's crescent moon (4th Dec). I've reduced it to get it on here, but it is still full of interesting detail.

I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

I've had time to annotate the photo, so you can see more easily some of the features.
