Hi Aratus I had another go,I decreased the contrast to bring out a bit more detail hopefully as it did start showing some noise on the image.
Thanks
Andy

Theophilus, Cyrillus and Catharina make a nice group when on the terminator. I like the detail inside Catharina, showing the various crater rims inside. The multiple mountain peaks inside Cyrillus are clearly defined. The Altai Scarp is catching the light nicely, with darkness either side showing the edge is higher. It's a really nice shot.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

Hi Aratus thanks for correcting my crater as my stupid moon map looked liked 184 instead of 134 as it was quite small in the guide,what a wally.I shall double check next time,I used my goto system to get the image with a 3x ed Barlow,but the atmosphere was quite unsteady.

I must admit I prefer a map with names on them rather than numbers, but they have to be so big!
