The Moon with X and V on display

A bit slow processing these but finally done - The Moon with the "X" and "V" on display from last night.

ED120APO, ASI120mm mono camera, 2.5x Powermate for the close-ups.  Processed in PIPP, Autostakkert!3, Astra Image and Photoshop for a final tweak!

The main image is a five pane mosaic - each pane 200/2000 frames taken (one was a pig where the scope/ camera or something moved and I had to crop about 50 frames from the end of the AVI - I think i may have walked past the scope and I must have nudged it! :hmh:

Close-ups as above ie 200/2000 frames each pane - one a single and one a two pane mosaic.
