Lunar image – Keplar


David Hughes

New Forest

The picture was taken on holiday in the New Forest with an Orion Europa 200, EQ5 Mount and Celestron NexImage Solar System Imager.

I’ve recently got into astrophotography and found the best results I’ve achived so far have been on the moon. I’ was quite impressed by how much different a little tweaking in an image processing software such as GIMP can achive. I’m quite please with the level of contrast I got between the ejecta rays and the Oceanus Procellarum.
