Mare Humorum   Leave a comment

From January: it is too hot out right now, and the moon is so low it gets eclipsed by the apartment buildings on 106th St.

The interesting thing about this picture is how bad conditions were in the exposure. Maybe thirty of 500 frames were in focus. I set Registax for 60 percent quality and got about a hundred frames. The big win was to create a reference frame from 10 frames, and set the search area in optimise to 8 pixels. This large a search area slowed the program to a third of its speed when set to the default of 2 pixels.
