Imaging telescopes:


This Moon image was taken at Blazing Star Observatory, near Salem, MO, on December 16, 2015. The telescope was an Explore Scientific ED127CF. The camera was a QHY5L-IIc. Eleven 500-frame videos were captured. The best 40-50 frames from each video produced sections of an 11-piece mosaic. The processing software was Registax 6, and the compositing software was Microsoft ICE. Final image processing used Corel PaintShop Pro X8.
