Moon Mosiac
by Doug Scobel

The article by Gary Seronik in the September 2004 issue of Sky & Telescope magazine inspired me to make a mosaic of the gibbous moon from some images I took on Wednesday, September 22, 2004. This shot is a mosaic of four overlapping images taken through my 8-inch f/8 Newtonian reflector, with Televue 14mm Radian eyepiece, using a Nikon Coolpix 800 digital camera. I used ArcSoft’s Panorama Maker to create the mosaic. After a few attempts, and fooling around with some of the settings, this is the result - totally automatic. I didn’t have to manually adjust the edge matches at all, although I did do a little clean-up around the limb afterward using Paint Shop Pro.

If your picture viewer shrinks the image to fit the window, then expand it to its full size to see all the detail.
