Photography ~ The Moon [after dark], Fay., NC–400mm Super Telephoto + Extender EF 2X III = 800mm, 09/04

Stacked & Sharpened.

Thank you to DarkArts_Astro for this article, I processed 12 images I took of the moon using PIPP & Registax 6. The article gives a clear, well-written explanation of a process that works. I am grateful. The software I used is freeware. Astra Image is a purchase-option for sharpening. It may well do better than I did on my first try.
