Lunar Photo - Schickard

182 frames at 80% best quality in Registax.
The Moon has it's "mysterious" ways in showing us its surface different, every time we observe it.
This phase reveals the western region, where there is not much, and darkness will cover the entire face of the Moon as we see it from Earth, to begin a New Moon in a few days.
The image is upside down, as seen through the telescope.

Craters seen here are Schickard (227 km), Phocilydes (114 km) and Nasmith (77 km).
