The Moon 2019-05-10

The Moon 2019-05-10, the bright side is stacked from 24 exposures of 1/20s, the dark side is a single 20s exposure. Processed with PIPP, Autostakkert, Photoshop and Lightroom.

I used the 127mm f/8 refractor together with a Nikon TC20EIII teleconverter on the Nikon D750, resulting in a focal length of about 2m. The picture is a combination of 24 exposures of 1/20s. First I aligned the pictures using PIPP to be able to stack them in AutoStakkert 3. Sharpening was done in Registax 6. In Photoshop I followed Dylan O’Donnell’s process for HDR moon images by combining the stack with a single 20s exposure using a layer mask in Photoshop, some final touches were added in Lightroom.
