Vallis Alpes

Hello Everyone,


Thanks for the kind comments. I have been trying to catch the rille and craterlets for some time. I finally got them. The seeing was not quite good enough for f/20, and I had some wind. Therefore, this AVI had to be processed 10 times, each time I put the alignment box on a different part of the image to get maximum sharpness in that region. I then took all 10 processed images and cut them apart to get the best pieces. I then assembled everything into the image I posted.

This is the first time I have used this technique, but it works quite well if you don't mind running RegiStax all day just to get one image.
