Hipparchus and Albategnius

Not the best of focus... but I'll find a "good" one eventually! Note the dark pock marks of Werner and Aliacensis...

Crater Bulliadus...

What a great pock mark on the lunar surface! This crater is exception during certain phases...

The Alpine Valley...

Almost exactly in the center of this frame is the rugged scar of the Alpine Valley... I'm sure I probably have a better, more clear frame than this, but it looks good for now!

Mare Crisium...

On the terminator! And bordered at either end by Cleomides on the right, and Firmicus on the left. Even the bright form of Proclus shows well!

Craters Atlas and Hercules...

Two of the finest craters on the Moon to offer detail! They are both splendid in the eyepiece when near the terminator. The shallow crater in the upper right hand corner is Burg...

Craters J. Herschel and Babbage...

Trying to tease some detail out of footage of the northern area. Harpalus shows nicely at the upper right of the frame with a fuzzy Anaximenes and Philolaus at the lower left.

Gassendi...

Gassendi Crater dances front and center in this frame!

Mersenius sits at the upper right hand corner and crater Liebig edges just off the top.

Toughie!

Wow... gonna' make a really round about guess here... and say the the craters are Theophilus, Cyrilus, and Catharina. The central mountain range could possible be Rupes Altai, ending at crater Piccollomini. That would leave the crater in the shadow at top center as Fracastorius.

What say you?

Posidonus..

During the beginning phases.

Posidonus and LeMonnier....

From a different perspective!

The splendid soft region of Chacornac highlights the ancient crater of Posidonius, and LeMonnier is the graceful curve at the center.

Craters Plinius and Ross also show to the right hand side of the frame...

Please keep in mind that I have left both the "bad" shots as well as the "good"! There are so many sites that show you only the most perfect of pictures...

Got news for ya'll... I ain't perfect!

So, if you don't mind hanging around with just an ordinary, average person? Then continue on.... ;)
