This is a mosaic of many moon shots (from August 2013 to August 2014). Details was taken with a monochromatic camera: MagZero Mz5m. It's a mosaic of 3x50 frames taken on a Skywatcher Newton 200/1000. Colors was taken with two reflex cameras in two different moments. Colors on the Moon are dominantly controlled by variations in iron and titanium content.
