This (https://vimeo.com/43883583)was shot in intervals of 30s with a SONY NEX-5 Wednesday night from my backyard. Not used to process and register moon shots but it didn't turn out too bad. Enjoy the view. :thumbsup:
PS: Here's a couple of stacks (https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6930D3AD12D5044C&id=6930D3AD12D5044C%21863#cid=6930D 3AD12D5044C&id=6930D3AD12D5044C%211210)I did in registax 6.

Marc, I agree. Trying to register moon shots is hard work. I have tried to do the same with my 2 min interval partial eclipse shots and yours is smoother.
Registax did not seem to want to know about multi-MB images so I had to do it by hand.

I tried a frew things: registax ^, AVIStack, a batch action in PS with the load into layers script and auto align. None of them worked. I ended up running an FFT align script in PixInsight that seemed to align 99% of the subs correctly. The ones with poor details due to seeing weren't registered so I moved them manually in PS. Here's my flow for this one:
1_ Load all RAW SONY files in LR Timelapse and Lightroom 4 to work out color balance, saturation, luminosity, levels, etc...
2_ Export all subs from Lightroom to scaled 16bit TIFF files.
3_ Run FFTRegistration.js in PixInsight. Edit line 756 to the following:
outputPath = this.outputDirectory + name + ".TIFF";
This will out put 16bit TIFF files instead of FIT files.
4_ Load all the resulting registered frames in AE or Premiere to output to H.264/Vimeo HD format.
Thanks David. Glad you liked it :thumbsup:

The animation is great - the stills are awesome! Congratulations!!!

Thanks mate. :thumbsup: I can now see the advantage of using a video as input rather than still frames spaced out in times. Some shots are very crisp and other very blurry. My DMK has a very narrow FOV though so to get the full moon I might have to use a lens rather than a telescope.
