39% Crescent Moon
In this image, the Moon is at 39% illumination. I captured 11 videos of different areas, stacked each video and then stitched the stacked images together. When I capture the Moon, I always use my standard saturation process which reveals the mineral compositions in the lunar basalts on the surface. These colours are the apparent browns and blues due to high concentrations of titanium and iron. I love the contrast between the lit and unlit areas of the Moon, and the closeup detail and clarity of this image.
