Yes they are made up from multiple images as the moon didn't fit within one frame.

There was around 200 frames of video recorded per section while the scope was tracking the moon, then advanced the scope across to frame the next 200 frames etc.

The frames where then stacked into a single image to smooth out distortion from our atmosphere & finally assembled in either Photoshop or paintshop pro.

Sorry for the double post but not worked out how to edit a post on Android lol.

I motorised my scope using stepper motors out of old inkjet printers & mechano  worm gears (& others), the old school brass ones not the modern plastic type :P
