Description

Not the usual way to image the Moon, but the CCD camera is too sensitive and I had to reduce the light somehow! I used OIII and SII Astrodon 3nm filters. Colours mapped as:
Red = SII
Green = (SII *0.5) + (OIII *0.5)
Blue = OIII

Also used the new Drizzle function in PixInsight.
OIII 15 x 0.001s
SII 15 x 0.001s
