I usually don't catch close-up images of the Moon, but I wanted the explore our neighbor in more detail. Turbulent seeing severely limited the quality and quantity of useful data. Also, I suspect the C14 lost collimation when coming from Venus, further softening the image and creating double edges.

The mountains of Montes Appeninus are casting jagged shadows to the west (upper left).
