Description

Here is my mosaic of the Moon. Given its size (about 24MP and 100MB), the processing was not as comprehensive as I like (GIMP). I did not work with curves or removed the chromatic aberration on purpose, as I wanted to make it as closely as possible to what one can see through the eyepiece when I look through my achromatic telescope.

On the other hand, there are three areas in the image that were not covered in the videos, so I had to use a 18MP photo that I luckily took with the camera before I started. At 100% zoom they are easy to find.
