B

Changed color balance to make image cooler, recombined and reprocessed to bring out more detail.

C

Tried a reprocess after seeing Russell Preston Brown's instructional on Youtube. This really worked better than Photomatix and eliminated the oversaturation and posterization that surrounded the eclipse. Was able to get some Earthshine on the Moon and recover some prominence detail as well!

D

Denoised a little bit, the prior image was just a bit too grainy for my tastes.

E

OK, think this is the last revision. Was able to get rid of the purplish hue and the halo around the Moon. I also sharpened the details a bit using a mixture of processes in PI and CS5.
