Oh how amazing this is.

Truly amazing . . would you know what scale this is . . say, what diameter the central crater might be ?

@Ronnie 2¢: If this is Crater Tycho (and I am not sure that it is), it is about 82 km.in diameter. Thanks, Ronnie.

how did you do this?!? i'm most impressed !!!
19 Feb 2016 12:36pm
@franz: To do this or a planet, you need a fairly powerful telescope. Mine is 9.25 inches in diameter. You take a video of the celestial object. Then the individual frames of the video are stacked in a computer program called Auto stakkert. A TIF is generated which is then processed in another program called Registax to bring out the detail. Finally, the TIF generated from this is processed in Photoshop which turns the finished product into a JPEG. All of this is only possible if the atmospheric conditions are suitable. Thanks for your comment, Franz.

More than a photo : a document.
Hope than men will never go again, and damage the Moon as they make for the Earth...

What an interesting detail shot. The light and shadow on the craters is excellent

This vision also is overwhelming ... I looked many years ago through a telescope ... but I did not come up with the idea to photograph the universe ... I thank you for allowing me to experience it in your photos ... 5*****

That's an impressive level of detail! It moves faster through the sky than one might guess before shooting it.
