Almost Full Moon

by Dave Watkins

I was playing around with stills, videos, and some different cameras last night (August 7).

This was 1080P video mode from my Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera and Celestron EdgeHD 8-inch using prime (focus), T-adapter (with one section removed), at ISO 200. I shot about five minutes of video which came out to over 10,000 frames.

I used PIPP (Planetary Imaging PreProcessor) to find and sort the sharpest 1,200 frames. Then I used AutoStakkert! to use the sharpest 30 percent to stack.

The Moon filled up so much of the frame that I had to remove part of my T-adapter to slightly shrink the image on my 5D MarkII.
