Tonight was a reasonably clear evening, and the seeing was pretty good, so I thought I would take a few higher resolution photos of the moon. I took new pictures of a couple of different areas of the moon that I had taken previously.
I was playing with the contrast a little more - as in increasing it, and I found the images are showing far more detail, as in this image of Rupes Altai. This photo is in color, I liked how it came out so well, I just couldnt discard the color information in this one.
This image was photographed in greyscale.
I used the 127mm refractor. Each frame in both images consists of at least 200 frames stacked in Registax 6. This image I used linked wavelets as an experiment. Although it does sharpen the image a bit more, it is extremely touchy, and a little goes a long way.
As in all of the images on this website, you can click on the image to see them full size.
