Canon D60 Moon "Mosaic" (x1/16 res)

Ok so I am bragging, but I gave my new D60 a chance to show its stuff last night. I intended to be out only a couple hours, but ended up staying up until 3 a.m.

This isn't a mosaic really. It is a single frame at ISO 400 1/250th second. I processed it in photoshop by multiplying it with itself at about 50% transparency. The original was 3072 x 2048. This was resized by a factor of 1/4 on each axis, so this is only 1/16th the original size (50%,radius 1, threshold 0 unsharp mask on the sized down version). Shot through my Meade 2080 8" SCT OTA mounted on my LXD-55.

Heck, I figured the moon was messing up my sky backgrounds, so I would give it a chance to really shine and be the "star".

Really nice. Worth bragging about! Really good details, excellent contrast. Are you going to post the full-size version somewhere? It would be interesting to see, even if it is a large download.
