Looks like Tycho to me. I think it's overexposed though and that has probably not helped with the processing. Try opening the histogram window in whatever capture application you're using and adjust the exposure until you're filling no more than 75% of the histogram.

If you have a DSLR it's also worth experimenting with that on the back of the Mak, though if you have it on a completely manual mount it could well be a bit tricky.
