Two-Day-Old Moon
Details
Date Taken: 01/02/2014
Photographer: Aaron Collier
Location: Bakersfield, CA
Telescope: Orion ShortTube 80-A Refractor Telescope
Mount: Orion Paragon HD-F2 Heavy Duty Tripod
Other Camera: Nikon 1 V1
Processing: Nebulosity 3 and Pixelmator
Exposure: 1x1/8 @ ISO 3200, 1x1/8 @ ISO 1600, 1x1/8 @ ISO 800
Notes: Thought the moon looked neat so I grabbed my new scope and snapped a few pics. I took three photos at different exposures and created an HDR image by stacking them in Nebulosity 3. The stacked image showed the star as three due to the movement of the moon in its orbit so I corrected for that by pasting a single image of the star over it.
