Lunar highlight so far is this little fella, the 14km diameter Hesiodus A, on the shore of the Mare Nubuim. Last night it was shadow filled so the neat inner "doughnut" was not visible but tonight, al

Thanks Fozzie :thumbright:

I'm finding the theories on the formation of these little craters fascinating to read about.

I'm hoping to have a look at Marth (#27 on Wood's list) this evening if it stays clear. It should be on show tonight.

The Ramsden Rilles are nearby and sound interesting as well :smiley:

I finally got to have a look at it last night. Excellent seeing, no wind, a little haze and not too cold, so generally good!

At x200 and x300 the feature was exquisitely sharp and defined (more contrast at x200), with the added feature of the little pin sharp craterlet in the centre of the main crater next door. Although the lighting conditions were past optimum to show Hesiodus at its best, still well worth a look - thanks John for the heads up.
