Moon August 4th

The Moon was low down and there was a lot of moving cloud but it was possible to see and also take a few full disc frames. It appeared somewhat past full, with Sinus Iridium on the terminator. Tycho's rays were still prominent, while those of Copernicus and Kepler also showed very well.

For this shot 19 frames of 31 were stacked.

 My 2nd attempt at processing used the best 11 frames of 31 and gave a better overall appearance, although less detail in some areas.
