Moon Lovers: Episode 5 Moon Mosaic – Attempt #2

This is my second attempt at a moon mosaic using a dedicated astrophotography camera. In my first attempt there was an obvious line (though faded) where the panels join. What I realized is that I did not have enough overlapping of similar elements between the panels. This time I exaggerated the overlap and was able to use the Photo Merge feature in Photoshop. This worked incredibly well to create a seamless merging of 5 panels.

Gear: Altair Hypercam 183C, Explore Scientific EXOS2GT mount, Omegon Pro RC6.

EXIF: 5 panels of 50 frames @ f/9, exposure 1/125, gain 800
