The magnificent Mare Nectaris area. With the trio of large craters Theophillus, Cyrillus and Catarina on the western rim. And at the bottom Fracastorius. The rima Fracastorius is also well seen.

Lower in the field of view the large Rupes Altaï. and all the way at the bottom Piccolomini.

Although taken on the same date as my large mosaic. this is a separate dataset, of three SER-files of 5000 frames (instead of 2500) and with exposure and gain geared specific for this area instead of for the high dynamic range of the entire moon.
