Image captured on the evening of Nov 25th when the Moon was about 4 hours past full. A TMB-130SS Apochromatic telescope and an SBIG 8300C OSC CCD camera equipped with a 13mm lunar filter and controlled by ImagesPlus (IP) Camera Control (Ver. 6) were used to capture 40 sub-images that were subsequently stacked, brightened and sharpened in IP. The natural colors of the moon were only slightly enhanced via increased saturation. - Copyright T.O.M.S. Observatory - 2015.11.27.
