The pictures (1327 X 1/[email protected]) used for producing this image have been captured with an APS-C DSLR camera, a 400mm lense and a 2X extender.

Processing (calibration, stacking, deconvolution) has been done with PIPP, AutoStakkert3, PixInsight and LightRoom and has generated nearly 300GB of data.

Colors have been exaggerated during processing but nevertheless are real.

They correspond to the chemical composition of the surface of the moon.

Blue areas are rich in titanium, orange and purple are poor in titanium and iron.
