First quarter Moon

With all the excitement of trying out my new ZWO camera on Jupiter yesterday, my reliable Sony images of the full lunar disk were left till today to process. Fortunately the atmosphere was kinder to the Moon than the night before and the results turned out well.

The first quarter moon from Austin, Texas. Taken 2017-04-04 03:40 UT. Questar 1350/89mm telescope with Sony a6300 camera at prime focus. Exposed for 1/60 sec at ISO 200. Best 8 of 109 images stacked and deconvolved in Lynkeos. Final crop and exposure tweaks in Photoshop.
