Another of my favorite imaging runs - a moon mosiac.  This is 33 panels of ~1000 frames, with the best 75% stacked per frame in AutoStakkert!2, sharpened in Registax 6, mosiac'd using AutoStitch (Microsoft ICE let me down, which is rare) and tweaked in Paint.NET

I'm so happy with this image I'm planning to have it printed for permanent display at home!  It's also the first serious lunar imaging session using the new ASI290MC, and I plonked an infra-red pass filter in the train for extra image stability.  It was late, cold and I was very very tired, but thankfully I didn't miss any overlaps with this run.  At 33,000 frames I would have hated to only be able to use a subset for individual images!
