The Moon's pass by Jupiter deconstructed

Last night the Moon passed by Jupiter (upper right) four degrees away. This is my deconstructed version of the event taken at 2919-03-27 10:05 UT from Austin, Texas.

The Moon and Jupiter taken with a Sony a6300 camera at the prime focus of a Questar 1350/89mm f/15 telescope. Jupiter exposed 1/13 sec at ISO 200. The Moon exposed 1/25 sec. Best 8 images of 100 stacked in Autostakkert and deconvolved in Lynkeos. Background stars and registration image using a Nikkor 180mm lens. Final composition, crop, and exposure adjustment in Photoshop.
