Now I'm not going to be able to observe Tycho without contemplating that boulder perched on its peak...

i don't see how that boulder could be a mystery though, i would bet it was just below the surface until impact threw it in the air and it came to rest where it is no?.

I suppose the dynamics of crater formation are such that a large majority of boulders would be flung far away from the crust upheaval which causes the central peak. The experts seem to believe it's sufficiently statistically unusual to justify further research anyway.

Thanks for posting this, it's wonderful. I wonder what are the chances that boulder landed there after being ejected from a nearby crater impact site. :)

      Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold. 

      7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little.
      Camera: Canon 600D
      Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
      ISO: 800
      Shutter speed: 1/400s

      Hi,
      included some images of April 12th.
      One image of Vallis Alpes, witht he large craters Arsitoteles and Eudoxus.
      Rima Hyginus, with lower in the image Triesnecker and Rimae Triesneckes to the right of it.
      The Apennines. A large mountain range. This is a two panel mosaic.
      and last byt not least a high res image of the lunar terminator from the Large crater Ptolemaeus all the way to the South pole.
      All images made using CFF CC300 f/20 and asi 174MM at prime focus. An Astronomik proplanet 807 filter was used to stabilize seeing.
      Enjoy the images, and feel free to share your toughts, comments etc. All images are also visible on my Astrobin page.

      Second time I undertake this kind of endeavour. Many many movies were shot. Over 300Gb of data. Stitching was done by hand. in adobe Photoshop. 
      Equipment used: 
      CFF 300f//20 cassegrain
      ASI174MM with Astronomik proplanet807
      processing using Autostakkert, lynkeos and adobe photoshop.
      Image is a wee bit too large to add to post direclty. hence just the link.

      Wouter.
