Wilhelm and Longomontanus



Scope: C8 f/30 Location: Del Mar CA;  23 Sept 2004;  Camera: Vesta 690

Exposure: .2 sec frames - approximately 100  frames chosen with IR filter. Best 50 frames (approx) used. Four frame mosaic.

Processing: AVIs were aligned and stacked in Registax. Some wavelet processing was applied. Images were saved in TIFF format. Mosaic combine performed in PhotoShop. Noise reduction performed by SGBNR in PixInsight. Final touch up in Photoshop involved some sharpening and color balance.

One of two lunar targets this evening. The other target was the Montes Carpatus area.  This image shows Crater Wilhelm (top) and Longomontanus (bottom). Montanari is sandwiched between the two. Also shown is the Heinsius group (abave Wilhelm) and Crater Lagalla (below Wilhelm) as well as Crater Brown (upper right from Longomontanus). I believe the horizontal FOV is about 2.5'
