South Lunar Pole 14-06-2009 by Chrissyo South Lunar Pole 14-06-2009 by Chrissyo
A mosaic of the southern lunar pole. I really love how rugged this region of the Moon is – and I love how the ‘edge’ towards the bottom left isn’t circular – its bumpy.

There are too many craters here to name, but my favourite two are Clavius (the largest one to the centre), Moretus (the crater to the lower middle-right with the central peak) and of course, Tycho (top middle).

Each of the images in this mosaic were taken with my 10” Newtonian telescope on a standard EQ6 mount with a 2X Barlow and a DMK21AU04.AS camera. Registax was used for processing.
