3-D printed lithophane of an image of the Moon that I shot on 04/06/2020 with my ES 127 FCD-100 with 3" FF / 0.7x FR, QHY 600M camera, and ES PMC-8 G-11.
Completed lithophane print.
Lithophane illuminated from behind.
The lithophane took 20.75 hours to print. I am pleased with the result with my first attempt. I am currently printing another version that is a little thicker to get more contrast which will take 29.17 hours to print.
