Lunar Mosaic
Lunar Mosaic at Orion Store
Lunar Mosaic at Orion Store
Details
Date Taken: 09/07/2012
Photographer: Gary V.
Location: Pembroke Pines, FL
Telescope: Orion SkyQuest XT8i IntelliScope Dobsonian Telescope
Camera: Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imaging Camera IV
Processing: Processed .AVI stream images with Registax 5. Aligned the final images with Photoshop 7.
Exposure: 15fps at 1024 X 768  240x magnification. Original AVI stream of over 3000 images and 12 final frames aligned compile this mosaic.
Notes:

No EQ platform used for this capture. I used the Earth's rotation to capture video passes across the lunar surface. My attempt to capture the Moon with the Planetary Imager as it appears through my Stratus 8mm eyepiece with optimal focus.  I think I got pretty close to that...
