Lunar basin Grimaldi, along with craters Riccioli and Hevelius and vicinity under favorable libration.

Quite some air turbulences with short phases of better seeing, atmospheric transparency affected by Sahara dust (less than the days before). Well, I had already obtained lunar images of better quality, but I like the view (hope you too).
