    I've been observing the moon tonight, like many of us I expect.

    The craters Messier and Messier A, with the distinctive comet-type rays extending from the latter, are nicely on show in the Mare Fecunditatis and will be for the next couple of days, clouds allowing. Well worth a look though any telescope.

    While finding out more about this interesting pair of craters I came across this fascinating photo in the Internet Archive. It shows the Apollo 16 Lunar Module "Orion" in lunar orbit while it is being inspected from the Command Service Module "Casper", the photo being taken from the latter craft of course. And in the background, on the lunar surface are the craters Messier A and Messier. Not an image that I've seen before.

    You can click on the image to see it at a much larger scale and very impressive it is :smiley:

    Better than binning it straight away.
