Default Sinus Iridium - on the Moon

My first attempt at a bit of a composite shot, and my first decent success using eyepiece projection to get a bit "closer" to the lunar surface.



I had a 25mm eyepiece in my lens-projection adapter, plus a Fringe Killer to try and reduce the aberrations caused by the cheap eyepiece. Converted to B&W. I actually stacked 42 images for the zoomed in bit, but don't think it really made much difference.

EDIT: After a little calculation, I estimate the magnified area is shot at roughly 3000mm and f/23.

Great detail, can clearly see the subtle textures of the surface. Nice shootin'.

Thanks guys. I was pleased to get the EP Projection setup working, but I'm struggling to get used out of my Barlows. I've got a 2" 2x Barlow and a 1.25" 3x Barlow. Both quite good quality, but really struggle to get focus when using them.
