Moon at 12 days

This image is an 18 frame lunar mosaic of a 12 day old moon.  This one was a real challenge in that I did not have my mount in Lunar Tracking mode and some of the combined frames did not overlap by very much making the stitching exercise a bit interesting.

Each frame is an average combine of 5 raw frames.  The frames were aligned and combined in CCDSoft,  layered and stitched in Photoshop, and deconvoluted in AIP4WIN.
