Waxing Crescent

Waxing Crescent

This image of the waxing crescent moon was taken with my Nikon d600 and Celestron Nexstar 6se via t-adapter. I recorded a 1 min .mov file and converted it to .avi. I took that .avi and stacked the frames in Autostakkert2 to create this detailed image. Further editing was done in Lightroom5.

Looks great! I just recently picked up a Nexstar 6SE, and got my first image of the full moon with a similar T-adapter setup (using a Canon T2i). I managed to find a T-adapter with a barlowe inside, looking forward to seeing what I can get with that! Keep up the good work!
