Vallis Alpes Rille

This is the first time I was able to capture a hint of the Vallis Alpes Rille. The seeing was slightly better than usual and I was able to get some data before a storm front started to move in. I used the MAP process to combine 9 different subframes, each aligned in Registax at a different location. I then used some light Maximum Entropy decovolution followed by wavelets in Registax, and finally a slight unsharp mask in Photoshop and levels adjustment.
