The Moon, now through an 80mm apochromatic refractor in the early morning hours of June 21st, 2011 from VAO in Webster , NY. I used the Lumenera Skynyx 2.0M camera to image a sequence lasting 90.32 seconds. I generated 444 FITS images from this sequence and used RegiStax to stack the best 70% of the images and combined them. Then use the Wavelet Filter from RegiStax to come up with the image you see on the right. Not bad for a cloudy night. Not bad for a minute and a half of Moon time.
Next, I present you 30 seconds of raw unedited video for your viewing pleasure. Keep an eye for the clouds rolling in. Enjoy!
