Lunar Colour

By AntHolloway
One from last night, of the nearly full moon. 5 images were taken of areas of moon using eyepiece projection through a telescope. The raw images were then processing using a fixed white balance and then combined to give an image of the full disk. The image has then been contrast enhanced and had the colour saturation increased to reveal the colour differences that exist between the various areas, due to the differing compositions of the rocks.

An amazing sight. The details you've captured are amazing - I had no idea the moon was so colourful!
