Over 3600 invidual images shot with my telescope were stacked and blended to obtain this highly detailed portrait of the lunar disc. The images were shot on different nights throughout the lunar cycle, and by combining them we can obtain details and relief in the different regions of the Moon, revealing deep impact craters and massive mountain ranges.
By slowly adding saturation layers we can also bring out different colors that correspond to different metals and minerals present in the lunar soil. For example, bluish hues correspond to titanium rich regions, whereas orange colors reveal the presence of iron oxides.
Hi-res version of the file will be sent to collector.
