THE MOON - A Geological Map

A geological map of the Moon

This is a stack of a few hundred frames that allowed the saturation to be increased while keeping noise decent. The hues are genuine, only much stronger.

The colours correspond to different types of rock, which makes this photo a geological map of the Moon.

Taken in February 2009 with very basic equipment (350D on a 80/400 refractor).
