May 14th, 2020 : Moon... The Moon... Our Moon


But wait, look over on the left. It’s so rough because the light is at the proper angle to show some depth while the rest of the
surface looks relatively flat.
Then Andrew McCarthy a California astrophotographer said I can fix that by photographing each crater, each detail, when the
light shows it best. That is correct in theory, however it’s bitch to do.

Quote:
McCarthy said: “From two weeks of images of the waxing moon, I took the section of the picture that has the most contrast (right before the lunar terminator where shadows are the longest), aligned and blended them to show the rich texture across the entire surface.
“This was exhausting to say the least, namely because the moon doesn’t line up day over day, so each image had to be mapped to a 3D sphere and adjusted to make sure each image aligned.”


What hath Andy wrought.
He captured his images at the terminator, the line between the light and dark sides, to give them great clarity and contrast.

The original shots were taken using an ASI1600MM and an edgeHD 800.

I like it. I wonder about the color of the soil. Getting that right has got to be a pain.
