How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

It shows the ray craters very well. Also the northern edge of the moon must have been tipped towards the earth as the dark Mare Humboldtianum at the top right is very noticable along with the large crater Endymion which was in shadow on my latest shot. Some people never bother with a full moon, but there is still a lot to see.
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
