We had very steady clear skies in Austin after the rain. This image of the waxing gibbous Moon catches Copernicus just at lunar sunrise.
Exposed on 2019-06-12 05:55 UT in NW Austin. Sony a6300 camera at prime focus on a Questar 89/1350mm f/15 telescope. Exposed for 1/25 sec at ISO 100. The best 9 of 100 images 1.5x drizzle stacked in Autostakkert 3, with deconvolution in Lynkeos, and final exposure and crop in Photoshop. Autostakkert usually does a great job stacking full lunar disk images, but occasionally it leaves some artifacts of the stacking process. I used Nebulosity's image quality grading to pick the images for this clean stack in Autostakkert.
