Half moon with 300mm f/4 PF and stacked TCs
3

Along with my Mars challenge I also set out to learn stakking techniques on the Moon. I used the same treatment with PIPP, Autostakkert and Registax as for Mars images, https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64497934 .

TC-20EIII+TC-14E was physically stacked on the 300mm f/4 PF, used mostly 2/3 stop down, on my AW1, 15 fps in bursts of 29 frames (full buffer). I stacked about 30% of 780 frames . I managed to make Autostakkert to do the job now without much artifacts opposed to my early attempts. The key here was to set the area for the "alignment points" to maximum (400 pixels). I did not apply any drizzle and used surface mode instead of planet mode.
