35% waxing, crescent Moon with a monochrome CMOS USB camera
An Opticstar PL-130M monochrome, USB CMOS camera was placed at the prime focus of a 127 mm Maksutov and six, 500 frame AVIs were captured of overlapping areas of the 35% waxing, crescent Moon. The AVIs were stacked and wavelet processed in Registax 5 and they were combined into a single image in Photoshop.
