Using my QHY5-11 colour planetary camera and my old 90mm ETX mounted on a StarAdventurer mount. 1000 frames reduced using PIPP and Registax6. Two still images stitched together using ICE. Colour enhanced to highlight surface albedo and indirectly changes in surface minerology. Mare Crisium, Mare Tranquilitatis and Mare Fecunditatis on display. The libration on 08-03-2017 favoured Mare Smythii, Mare Undarum and Mare Marginis which are clearly visible towards the lunar limb. The craters Stevinus A and Furnerius A together with their ejecta ray systems are prominent.
