SX50 and the full Moon, enhanced

Just got my new SX50 and pointed it at the Moon at the full zoom.

The first image is as taken. Intentionally under exposed to not blow-out any features, needed for the second image.

The second image is post processed to show maximum detail. Astronomers don't work with images as taken, they are enhanced to get all the possible detail out of them.

Nov. 28, 12:26 AM, 1/320 sec, f/6.5, ISO 100, 1200mm FL.
