The crater Ptolemaeus and the surrounding area. The image is the result of 456 frames stacked and processed in Registax with final processing in Photoshop.

This image covers some of my favourite lunar craters which become visible around the time of first quarter, particularly Ptolemaeus, Alphonsus and Arzachel which offer a considerable amount of detail.
