Clavius to Schiller
This is a two-frame mosaic taken with
a DMK21 camera and an Astro-Professional 80mm ED refractor:
The very obvious crater in the middle of the mosaic is
Tycho, it is relatively young and therefore the ejecta
rays can still be seen brightly across the lunar landscape.
Please note the dark area directly around Tycho which
is also caused by ejecta of the impact.
To the lower right is the beautiful crater Clavius which
has a nice curve of smaller craters on the floor. To the
lower left you can see the very elongated crater Schiller
which was produced by an oblique impact.
Aristarchus is one of my favourite areas on the moon. You can
see the very bright crater Aristarchus and the Schröter
Valley below it.
On the right edge of the image, the Marius hills are visible
at the border between light and shadow.
This evening I also did a comparison between the QHY5
and the DMK21 cameras.
