Description

Whilst imaging Jupiter and Saturn last night, I also managed to sneak a single capture of the Moon before it crossed the meridian.

The large crater here is Petavius, with Rimae Petavius running almost all the way across the crater.

Wrottesley is to the upper left of Petavius, whilst the bowling-pin shaped Vallis Palitzsch is to the lower right.

Still a bit undecided on the processing front ... let me know which version you prefer (if any, CC welcome if not). :)
