Hi Karl,
As I've said on this forum before the Sinus iridium or Bay of Rainbows is my favourite object on the Moon and you have captured it superbly in this image. Well done mate! and thanks for sharing the photo.

I had purposely prepared a version at 1024x768 pixels (wallpaper size). The link below should take you to the image.

Hi Karl,
The 1024x768 is the correct res. for my screen, but the posted image worked just fine.
Beautiful image. I think I'll be using it a lot if you don't mind Karl, essays and so forth.

Hi Karl,

Great image - I always like the Sinus Iridium. The two craters (Helicon and Leverrier) really make the Mare look better - they give a bit of interest in the "foreground".
