The Moon on International Observe The Moon Night 2017

International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) is an annual worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation, and understanding of our Moon and its connection to planetary science and exploration, as well as the cultural and personal connections we all have with Earth’s nearest neighbour.
We had our best observing conditions early in the evening with The Moon high in the sky.
This shot was taken with a Canon DSLR camera in video mode, shooting through an 8″ SCT Telescope. I took a 20 second video and stacked the resulting frames in Autostakkert. Then I tweaked the contrast and saturation in The GIMP.
