Colour enhanced Moon, 15 October 2011

Canon EOS 450D DSLR prime focus with 2x Barlow on Sky-Watcher 150 Explorer Newtonian; EQ3-2 mount.

I love the natural colour contrasts of the Moon, best seen in the maria. This image of the waning gibbous Moon was processed in PixInsight and Photoshop to enhance the colours. Mosaic of two images each stacked from DSLR images (1/50s ISO100; north 7 subimages, south 8 subimages).
