Default Copernicus with GStarEx2

Hi GstarEx users, boys and girls.
I am new to the group and have been
experimenting with my new GStarEx2.
Amazing how easy it is to take pictures
with this camera, thanks to the great
software that accompanies it.
I would like to share the attached ( click
attachments ) photo of the moon I took.
It is a combination of 5 percent of the best
frames out of 200. Stacked in Registax with
only a slight adjustment to the gamma.
The weather isn't co-operating at present,
and when it does I hope to refine the camera
settings a little more, so as to get the best I can
out of it.
Please feel free to comment on the image, no
matter what you think of it as I am just a beginner
when it comes to astrophotography.
Cheers to all
George

That's a good looking image George. Highlights just a bit burnt-out. You may be able to correct that in something like Photoshop, although Registax does have adjustments available (which I can never work out ). What settings did you use on the camera?
Yes, its a great little camera especially for feint targets. When the clouds have cleared you should have a lot of fun.

Thanks for the reply guys, much appreciated.
Sorry Robert, but I didn't keep a record of the
settings as I was playing with the camera and
taking random shots to find out how the camera
works.
I'll be keeping a log of the settings once I know
the ins and outs of the GStarEx2.
Cheers to all
George
