Description

The May Full Moon is slowly growing in the sky. 1st Quarter Flower Moon is a great opportunity to take a look along the terminator at zeroth lunar longitude. Apennines' shadows are outstanding, as are Arzachel, Aristillus and the awesome canyons around Sinus Medii. Can you spot Rupes Recta?

Details: 2% of 25000, gain 0, 11 ms, L band

EDIT 1:

Rev C: drizzle x3 on 20% of 25k frames. a completely different wavelet reprocess on very different detail layers, then downsampled to 4K. Hope, I haven't failed!
