Description

Taken from home through an open window (no balcony on that side). ToUCam webcam on the primary focus of a 50 mm f:10 achromat set on a tripod; no tracking. Two AVIs, one each for the northern and southern portions of the Moon; the stacked images were stitched with Hugin and postprocessed with GIMP (at its version 2.6 back then), or perhaps the other way around.
