My Colorful moon
« on: 2013 August 19 09:23:42 »
After seeing Ignacio Moon here http://pixinsight.com/forum/index.php?topic=5908.0
it' really hard posting a moon image  :-[

But I would like to share with you my Moon detail.

The moon was only 23° over the horizon and the Atmospheric chromatic aberrarion was really evident (about three pixel between red and blue image)

Processed with Pixinsight 1.8 RC7 (deconvolution, HDRMT, curves and Color Improvement), it's a two panel mosaic composed with PS (is there a way do it with PixInsight?)

Registration and Stacking of 440 frames with Registax (only because i didn't know that i could try with PI  :embarassed: )

Summer isn't the best season to shoot the Moon, but you made a good job.

Nice image. Pity about the chromatic aberration. I haven't used Registax for a while, but I seem to recall that there was a way of correcting for this.

Yes, I have used Registax to correct for that.
Also in PI exists a similar function to align rgb layers or you can separate RGB layers, star align, then put all together again.

Thank you all for kind words.

Most of the problem comes from the blue channel. The alignment is not right for all frames so it is a 'double' image.

Given how low the moon was, it is a very good result, Edoardo.

best
