A slightly different angle with the Barlow. I welcome any comments, good or bad, hard to improve without hearing from those who have better images, you are my mentors!

Again using the Orion Shorty 2X Barlow I wanted to get Plato on this image and Mare Imbrium (Sea of shower/ rain). Mare Serenitatis (Sea of serenity) is in there as well.
