This was a nine pane mosaic ...Nine Pane mosaic.

I have to say , IMHO, that Full Moons don't make great subjects. Now , if you shoot at a phased Moon , they are superb.

Hi Pete,

Got it, work from the outside in. I remember your coloured mosaic, what I didn't pick up on was that it was your first attempt! ..... and done in ICE too!

Just got to ask what you mean about Full Moons not making great subjects? Is that because there is not really a terminator line to highlight lots of interesting detail? Your nine pane mosaic is almost a full moon isn't it? I think it looks fantastic.

Have you done any more since then?
