We have had so many clear nights recently I've had no time to process and post any images. For example, I've obtained Venus images almost every evening for the last month.

This was a very low low waning Moon taken in a single shot with a DSLR and 100ED scope. At this phase the Mare Nectaris (below the middle of the terminator) appears to be a multi-ring basin. I don't know if it is the official selenogical opinion that it is such, though.
