It toke more than 10 years of astrophotography so that I finally make a moon mosaic!
After a month with a lot of good nights for deep sky astrophotography (Which I’ll post here soon), the full moon came and made it unfeasible.
But my will for astrophotography stayed. What can I do?
Well, do a moon mosaic, of course!

When you live in a place that get infested by mosquitoes at summer and also get freezing cold at winter, you do need to find a way to shot some astrophotographies and yet stay alive to stack all frames on the next day.
Once the sky is not helping me lately, I’m doing the job to automatizate my setup. Or kinda it. I mean, my setup is “semi-mobile”… it is light weight enough to mount everything every night, but most of my images are taken from my backyard.

Yes, both Saturn and Jupiter are far away from a good position to astrophotography right now.
Although, as I said before, the weather here is so bad lately that I need to enjoy every breath of clear sky. And so I did.
Last friday night (You can thank me later for the quote, Katy Perry), October 11, 2019, the sky didn’t have any clouds at all, and I FINALLY could put my setup to work.

Well, I’m desperate. Simple as that.
I’m taking every brief of open sky to try the “new” setup, and geting every time more frustrated with the weather.
Last wednesday I saw the moon between a lot of clouds, and I thought: Why not to try?
