Professor. Dr. Michael Schuster specializes in inorganic and analytical chemistry and works at the Chemistry Dept of Technical University Munich. Apparently he also has a hobby of astrophotography. Prof. Schuster captured these amazing lunar pictures with a DMK 41AU02.AS camera on the 1st of August.

The pictures are zoomed out to fit in to our blog layout, but you can open the original by clicking on them.

Here is the quote of his mail:

After my first successful experiments with a DMK 21AU04.AS in April this year I decided to also purchase a DMK 41AU02.AS, mainly for taking pictures of the moon. In the night of August 1st I took the chance and recorded a series of videos with the new camera. I mounted it to a Celestron C 9.25 telescope at a focal length of 4.7 m. The pictures were taken in a rural area around 50 km north of Munich, Germany and were processed with AviStack 2, Registax 5 (wavelet functions) and Adobe Photoshop CS2 (final processing). Again I was amazed how easy and comfortable it was to work with these affordable cameras. Attached you can find some examples of pictures obtained with the new "high resolution" blue cube.
