Lunar Surface Photo: Mare Imbrium

Blogged by Aurélie Le Fort-Beunink on October 12, 2012 and tagged with Sample Images, Moon.

Here is my recent lunar composite photo of the Mare Imbrium region taken with a The Imaging Source DMK 41AU02.AS cam prime with an Orion 10" f/4 Newtonian, and Tele-vue 2.5x Powermate, mounted on SkyWatcher EQ6 Pro mount.

A total of 1725 individual frames processed with Registax 6.1, Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 4.1.

You can see the mountain range Montes Apenninus from the bottom left up to the center of the photo. The large crater is Archimedes. The two smaller craters to the upper right are (top down: Aristillus and Autolycus).
