Testing the versatility of the SV405CC OSC camera

An SV405CC OSC was placed at the Cassegrain focus of a Skymax 127 Maksutov that was modified for motor focus. The scope was mounted on a Celestron AVX GOTO mount.
 
AstroDMx Capture for Windows was used to capture a 1200-frame SER file of the 25.3%, waxing, crescent Moon. The SV405CC was un-cooled for this experiment.

The sensor is large enough to capture the whole lunar crescent.
 
The best 95% of the frames in the SER file were stacked in Autostakkert! and post-processed in the Gimp 2.10.

The SV405CC OSC is clearly a capable lunar imager in addition to its primary role as a deep sky imager.
