Montes Apenninus and sunrise on the rim of Copernicus


Recommended Posts

 

The Moon looked spectacular in the late evening sunshine yesterday so I decided to aim  at one of my favourite lunar regions – Montes Apenninus. Due to the heatwave the seeing wasn’t the best however, after admiring the view on screen my patience paid off when the atmospheric turbulence settled to give some sharper views. I captured 5,000 frames and stacked the best 50% of them to produce this image.

 

Equipment:

 

Celestron Nexstar 4SE

ZWO 290mm mono camera

 

Processed using; Autostakkert and Pixinsight.

 

Many thanks,

 

Dan
