First use of the new pier. Since the moon was out, I shot it!

Celestron Nexstar 4SE (mak, 1325mm focal length, f/13) on EQ6. Camera DMK41.
Processing: AS!2 stacking. Wavelets in Registax 5. Panorama in Photoshop Elements.

I ended up taking 13 panels of over 1000 frames each with generous overlap to cover the whole surface. Wanted to make sure I didn't have a repeat of the disaster last time. Again I took a conservative wavelets and levels approach. I really wish this was in colour, but having to manually process each of the 13 files by hand, I don't fancy needing to do that 3x over! All of a sudden a planetary OSC sounds more tempting...

Tried to take a flat using a white plastic bag over the scope still pointed at the moon, but it came out funny so I binned it. I think it was too far into the noise floor to be useful.
