Copernicus shot with ASI224 MC and Filter Zwo Ir Cut

This time i tried to shoot a beautiful crater in the Moon without the using of the IR Pass filter. I used instead a Zwo Ir Cut Filter.

The crater i chose is Copernicus (Copernic). It’s a young and isolated formation with hexagonal form, bight rays all around. Very steep slopes dominant Mare Insularum of 900 m tormented and supporting Fauth to the South and
Gay-Lussac to the North.

    I managed to get a decent shot of Copernicus with my new 120MC but with a 2x barlow instead of 3. The scope I used was a 130SLT on the standard mount, shot with firecapture and stacked and processed in autostakkert and lightroom

    Hi Matt,
    Excellent images, did you use Registax for wavelettes ?
