Description

I took my first 640x480 center crop movies of the moon on this night with my Canon 60D. I don't have a MOV to AVI file converter yet, so I can't stack the frames yet. This image was one of the sharpest frames I could find using the "lucky image" method. I don't have the software to extract the frame to a file, so I used the keyboard print screen to create a jpeg. I used Arcsoft to crop, rotate, tone adjust, and resize the image. The uploaded image was resized to 200% of the original.

Original image: 1 frame captured as described above .

Image B: darkened image.

Image C: Best 10 percent of 2207 unique frames. PIPP was used to create the AVI file. AutoStakkert!2 was used to stack the frames using 3x drizzle to resize output 300% tiff file. StarTools used to sharpen image using wavelets. ArcSoft PhotoStudio used to convert tiff to jpeg. The stacked file has only slightly more detail than the best individual frame but is smoother.

Image D: Reduced image to approx match size of Original and Image B so it will display correctly in Astrobin.

From MOV 012.
