Scope SW200p, Camera ATIK314l+ mono, mount AZ-EQ6 GT. Stacked in Registax 6,aligned in Maxim DL5, combined in Photoshop CS2, colour saturation in Nebulosity 3.

RGB image of the moon. Best 80 frames of a hundred in each filter at 0.001s exposures. I like how the subtle colourisation has brought some nice contrast to the Mare regions. Shot at nearly 11pm as the moon was slipping behind neighbours trees and out buildings. The lunar X would have been visible in another hour.
