WYAS Moon Astrophotography Challenge 15th April 2014

As a one off challenge, we set a competition for one night to photgraph the full moon. 

This Full moon image was taken with a DSLR using an 8” SCT telescope. The image is a composite of 2 moon halves, each half being a high definition image made up of a stack of 30 DSLR images taken with 1/60th second exposure at ISO 640 with a Canon 40D.  The two halves were then merged in Photoshop.
