A Full Moon for Christmas – December 25th, 2015

A Full Moon mosaic acquired on the night of December 24 to 25, 2015. After a short High Resolution session of some lunar craters together with my brother in law and the 14 inch scope, I’ve decided, due to degrading seeing conditions, to make a small lunar mosaic. The result shown below is a 30 panel mosaic, each a 700 frames stack with the ASI 120MM-S camera and Red filter at the focal plane of the 355mm F/5 Newtonian. The image is resized to 50% due to degrading seeing conditions altering the different panels.
