Took a shot of the visible moon at around 0845 this morning with the SX50
....... then decided to have a go at processing it in PS.
After a bit of dabbling and not being happy with the results started back on the original image and hit Auto tone....
..... what a transformation.
There was a lot of noise but this was cured simply by de-saturating and duplicating the layer then painting the underlying layer black, created a mask on the top layer then painted out the noise in the dark area surrounding the moon
...... A slight rotation then a square crop.
