Not an ideal night for astronomy, the sky did appear to clear but it was too murky for imaging deep sky objects and the seeing was pretty rubbish so imaging the moon was like peering through jelly. Still, something came out and perhaps with a bit more processing the shots can be improved.

Hello After processing a film on the subject the result was not good, but he dragged one that ultimately was much better. This is in IR 685 which leaves a little margin to do better with less turbulence. Once again it is my best picture of this area. Good walk over. The lighting in the axis showcases the rilles perpendicular to the detriment of the main rille in which we begin to see details. the lunar Alps were likely formed by a sudden collision that created the giant impact basin known as the Mare Imbrium or Sea of Rains. Have a good day. Luc At 75% : At 100% :
