Description

As I was waiting for Saturn to cross the meridian (and avoid a mid-session flip) I grabbed some frames for a variety of craters/regions on the moon.

A 3 minute video was captured at each location, yielding just shy of 15,000 frames per file to choose from ... necessary, as there was an intermittent gusty breeze shaking the mount (although both seeing and transparency were good). The best 2,000 frames were stacked from each capture.

Rev B: Clavius region
With Scheiner and Blancanus to the south west and south, respectively (in this orientation). A pleasing amount of detail became apparent on the crater floor (and Rutherfurd) during sharpening, including a fine rille starting at the northern edge of Clavius D and heading north west.

Rev C: Longomontanus region
Good detail in the crater floor again. Also, with the Moon at approx. 86%, the bifurcation of Longomontanus D is accentuated nicely.

Rev D: Tycho region
Had to include this iconic crater in the tour. :)

Rev E: Copernicus region
Slightly negative values were required at wavelets 5 and 6 to prevent this bad boy from clipping upon sharpening in Registax! (Images were drizzled 3x during stacking, then reduced to an appropriate image scale on final export.)

Rev F: Philolaus and Anaxagoras region
An interesting region along the north-northwestern limb.

Thanks for looking!
