My first attempt at boosting saturation on a lunar image to enhance colour. The source image was a single DSLR image taken at the start of the Sept 2015 TLE. with a 900mm f/7.5 scope.
The boosting technique involves multiple saturation layers in Photoshop and can be found at The AstroShake’s website: http://www.astroshake.com
Its mostly the lava that enhances in the Mare regions. The ancient highland rock remains grey.
Blue is Titanium rich rock (mostly in Sea of Tranquility).
The mineral there was named ARMALCOLite after ARMstrong, ALdrin, COLlins – the astronauts from Apollo 11 whose LEM touched down in the Sea of Tranquility and collected samples.
Green and brown is Iron rich rock.
Deep reddish orange is metal poor rock (mostly around crater Plato to the North).
