Endymion - June 23

After a long delay in getting a defective DMK 21F04 replaced I finally got out and took some more photos of the moon. This one was from June 23rd. I took it from Shalimar, Florida using a 12 inch SCT and DMK 21F04. I stacked the best 1,000 frames from a total of 4,700 using Registax.

Excellent!! Very detailed. How are you able to stack 4700 images in Registax? When I reach about 2350 images my system gives an error. I have a P4 3ghz with 2 gigs of RAM.

Hi Kirk,

Great! image and I really like the processing too, are you using your SCT in Alt/az mode if so do you ever have alignment problems due to image rotation when doing hires lunar imaging over about 90 seconds, this image looks like it aligned fairly well though.
