About this image

This time of year it's always tricky to get a good look at the Moon early in the lunation due to the location of my observatory. It's a compromise between light skies and missing nearby houses! I particularly like the dark pit that is Theophilus and that all the eastern seas (Maria Marginus, Smythii and Australis) are well seen.

Image converted to monochrome and tweaked a bit in Lightroom.
