Suggested title: our colorful Moon


Setup: Fujifilm x-t30 mirrorless camera attached to a Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope with 127 mm aperture and 1500 mm focal length.


Processing: stack of best 100 shots out of 400 and sharpening with the Autostakkert!3 software. Saturation of colours with GIMP (on a layer without sharpening to avoid introducing noise). To obtain the three dimensional effect, a second picture of the Moon (taken on February 7 2020 17.41 UT from the same location) was included as an opaque layer. The two Moon pictures where aligned with the WinJUPOS software before processing with GIMP (perfect alignment of moon features was not possible due to moon libration).
