Image of Tycho taken during gibbeous phase when illuminated from above with little shadowing. Taken with a Vivatar 3x teleconverter and a Canon 60D in 640x480 center movie crop mode. Converted from MOV to AVI with PIPP. Stacked with AutoStakkert with Drizzle 3x. Processed in StarTools with Wavelet Sharpen Large Structure Size Scales 1-3 set to 100% and Amount set to 1000% to maximize sharpening effect. Used the Contrast module with aggressiveness turned off to darken the less reflective areas. Because Drizzle triples the size of the image, used Bin 50% resulting in an image 1.5 times the normal size for a image taken at 2400mm FL. The coma corrector was not needed because of the teleconverter.
