20070621 Short moon experiments

Again trying to show the color of the moon, this time, I used my Borg 45ED II with ToUCam Pro at prime focus, since the moon is not full, the tiny ToUCam chip can fit in the whole half.

Then I use 2x barlows to take two separate shots, to verify if the color is consistent or not.

First shot is a normal shot:-

Next is a saturation pushed shot, notice some horizontal strip-like artifacts:-

Finally, the next two shots are taken with barlows, but it seems like the color balance is not well maintained, thus, I even not tried to push the color, it sounds like that I should try to do proper white balance before the shots, lock the white balance setting, so that it would be consistent next time:-
