Lunar Astrophotography from the South of Germany

Blogged by Aurélie Le Fort-Beunink on May 30, 2013 and tagged with Sample Images, Moon.

In the night of October 3rd 2012 I recorded a series of moon videos with my DMK 41AU02.AS camera which was mounted to a Celestron C11 OTA and a 2x Barlow (1/15s exposure time per frame, 15 fps). Seeing conditions were good (7/10). The pictures were taken in a rural area around 50 km north of Munich, Germany. The videos were processed with AviStack 2.0, Registax 6.1 (Wavelet Sharpening) and Adobe Photoshop CS5 (final processing). The enclosed picture shows the westward "coastline" of Mare Crisum and the prominent crater Macrobius (left upper corner).
