This prime-focus image is my first to clearly show the "V" and "X" markings that are only visible close to this particular position of the terminator. 1/250th of a second at ISO 200.

In this image I increased the gamma a little to accentuate the terminator and hence the "V" and the "X", the cost of that being higher brightness for the rest of the disc.

The Meade MTS-SN6 is a 6-inch f/5 Schmidt-Newtonian telescope from the 1980's.
