This is a 30 panel mosaic of the first full moon of July. Each image is a 500 frame monochrome SER. Taken with a ZWO ASI120MM-S camera through my Celestron C6-R at prime focus. I also used a 2" Baader Semi APO filter. I first stacked the SER files in Autostakert2 and got some mixed results. Some of the images did not stack right and had weird stretch artifacts and some double craters. I later stacked them all on Registax6 with much better results. I then used PhotoMerge in PhotoShop CS6 to stitch the mosaic together. I did manage to miss a small section of data at about the 7 O'clock position.
