Moon

Our closest celestial companion is of course our own Moon.

On 30 December 2019 there was a lovely crescent Moon. Like last time imaging was done with the Esprit 150ED in combination with the ZWO ASI1600MM Pro Cool. Focusing with SharpCap, processing and sharpening in AutoStakkert, post-processing in Paint Shop Pro (slight sharpening).

It has been a while since I last imaged the Moon, while it is such an obvious and charming object. So on 12 December 2019 I gave it a try again. This time imaging was done with the Esprit 150ED in combination with the ZWO ASI1600MM Pro Cool. Focusing with SharpCap, processing and sharpening in AutoStakkert, post-processing in Paint Shop Pro (slight curve pulling).

Adjacent image is a composite of two images taken with the SkyWatcher Esprit 150ED and ZWO ASI174 planetary camera. Being close-by the moon provides stunning views that change by the day due to the moving terminator (the region between day and night on the moon).
