Tonight's Lunar's showpiece Crater Gassendi

Recommended Posts

Yes, finally getting out again.

I went out with the 10"dob to do some Moon gazing. Pretty stable views tonight letting the magnification going up to 300X. Plato showing some of it's smaller impact craters. Copernicus crater walls giving stunning details. Than Gassendi attract my eye, laying close against the terminator. I don't think I observed it before, maby just scanning over it. But this is a really nice crater and a real showpiece. It has a lot to show, several center peaks, a smaller compangion next to it and several beautiful rilles.

Small report but great crater.
