Description

Processed single image of the waning Moon taken through a Takahashi FC-76Q refractor (FC-76DCU with added Extender CQ 1.7x) at 954mm f/12.6 at 800 ISO and 1/1600s using a Fuji X-A3 mirrorless APS-C camera and cropped from the original.

This was one of a series of images taken with the intention of stacking and processing them with Lynkeos but the results I got with that were slightly worse than the best single frames in my set, probably due to my relative inexperience with the software.

Seeing wasn't great so I think this setup can give me better images, especially once I get to grips with stacking.
