After last night's WOLAS meeting, I was inspired by the talk and the extremely clear skies there-after and so I took this image of the moon through a William Optics Megrez 110mm refractor using a 2x Barlow and a Canon 350D camera. It's a three photo composite stitched together in Photoshop.

Well there is this auto stitch option in Photoshop CS3 which works quite nicely. It produced some jaggy edges around the black area of the final image which I had to fill in using the fill tool. I also rotated the image a little.
