My first try with the 10'' RC and ASI294 for an image of the moon. A composition of two images since the FOV is too small to cover the complete object in one frame. I used ASICap to record two AVI-sequences, each of about 200 frames, and then AutoStakkert to pick the best 50% of the frames and stack them. Final sharpening and levels adjustments was done in PS CC 2020. A little burn-out in the highlight areas must be corrected later on.
