43. Celestial Bodies

I have tried so many times to get a shot of the moon during the past two evenings.  I was determined this evening to get a good shot and I think I did. I used an old Nikon 70-210 lens and still had to crop it tightly. I was very pleased with the results as many of the craters are recognizable.  The round doughnut-type area near the right bottom is Crater Tycho; the round area at the top is the Sea of Crises; and the larger area underneath and to the right is the Sea of Fecundity. Take a look at this website to further identify the various craters: http://www.penpal.ru/astro  (Move your cursor over it and the crater names will appear.)
