I've reprocessed an old picture of the Apennine mountains on the moon using Adobe Lightroom. Here is the result:
This image was originally captured on March 10th 2013 using the QHY5 Mono camera at prime focus of the trusty Meade LX10 (8 inch) telescope. Probably a stack of the best 10% of a thousand frames.
This is undoubtedly one of my favourite features on the Moon. The total length of the range is about 600 km (370 mi), with some of the peaks rising as high as 5 km (3.1 mi).
