Description

My first attempt at a lunar mosaic. Composition of 13 separate videos

Each section is 1 minute of raw video @ 30fps (~1800 frames).

For a few sections, Autostakkert had trouble aligning all of the frames, so I had to cut down the number of frames for those. Usually, I stacked the best 40-50% of frames from each clip.

I attempted to follow the shadow terminator, but it was a bit more difficult since it was curved at the time.

I also only got about 2/3 across the diameter of the moon - I filled up my 32GB SD card, and decided to call it a night at that point to see if the data I captured was any good.
