Description

C) Single shot !
Original ) Stacking of avi file 190 frames
D, Final) improved processing of Original
The stacking reveals the larger inner Plato Crater (4, barely visible) with up to 2 km in Diameter, which is pretty much in line with the theoretical resolution of my 8" telescope ( 1km at lunar surface ) at native focal length 2000 mm.
Further considerations are the seeing conditions and the moon's current farest LD ( apogee :+ 50000 km)

The diameter of Plato is 101 km and it is 1 km deep.
