Here’s a picture of Longiomontatus, Tycho, and Pitatus region of the moon taken January 9, 2006 around 11pm EST. The left side was processed in Registax 4 with five alignment points. The right side was processed using Registax 3 using a single alignment point. The right side was lightened up to match the left side, and reduced in size as well. Both images were run to Expand to maximum imagesize. Registax 4 produced more noise around the edges, from the multiplicity of alignments. This was cropped away in Photoshop. There was less noise in Registax 3, so it only needed to be reduced, which sharpens up the image as well.
