I took images of this amazing lunar feature after reading Pete Lawrence’s article in Feb issue. I took one image on 18th Feb (long shadow cast with shallow solar illumination) and this, one day later, showing a much sharper image of the fault line. I was very glad to have captured the Stag’s horn and Rima Birt features as well as some irregularities on the fault line itself.
