Very nice work and well done.
How beautifully sharp! I love the composition. I may bring the background to a uniform black; bringing just the moons to a single background rather than a square crop of each picture.
Really, wonderful job!
Thanks for the kind words. I did try to bring the background to the same color, but I have to admit, I am not very good at processing images in PS. The Moon images themselves were processed in a different software that allowed me to stack multiple Moon images to ensure I could stretch the images, sharpen them and reduce noise; but in the process, the backgrounds were not consistent and they show as the squares in PS.
If there is anyone who can help, I wouldn't mind learning!
Hey Dhaval -
If you have time, google "making selections in photoshop." You should have a lot of luck. Here's one YouTube tutorial I found;
The Adobe website also has a wealth of tutorials.
I like the way you did the composite. I got some shots of the eclipse here in Iowa but it was so cold my remote for camera froze and would not work. My shots were not very sharp. I did this composite of two shots
Those are very good pictures of the Moon - it is extremely difficult to shot a Lunar Eclipse, especially if you don't have a tracking mount and don't know what you're doing. This was my first time taking images of the Lunar eclipse, but I do a lot of other astrophotography, so I know some tricks!
The images that I took were without a tracking mount, just that I took around 20 to 30 images at various phases of the eclipse and then stacked those images in a planetary imaging software. If you were to look at my individual frames, they are not that great (in fact, a lot of them are garbage).
Thanks for sharing your pics!
I also tried to do this shot of milky way but there was to much light pollution where I was at. I shot this shot straight overhead. 10 to 12 shots, then stacked with Deep Sky Stacker, then used Photoshop to get this image.
