Full Moon Mosaic

This is my first FULL moon mosaic, taken on Sept 17/05. Because the moon is so large, this image took 18 pictures total to create, stitched together using IMERGE.

Used an IR blocking filter and a moon filter. Imaged in black & white. K3CCDtools brightness preview meter at 140-160, 600 frames grabbed at 10fps for each of 18 images to be stitched together to make the whole. Best 200 images selected (automatic) for each piece.

(note: I cheated to make this one of the moon,
by mapping the image on a sphere in Photoshop, and
rotating it a little for the second image).
