The image i made displays Mare Marginis and the Crisium basin. I was impressed of the appearance under high solar illumination of the limb regions so that i imaged them. Processing was carried out using the contrast/brightness as i have seen visually.
Mare Marginis (no so much imaged) display several features. Image made with a Mak Cassegrain 18 cm
You find the image here:

Thanks at all. Also for me it is unusual image being really taken under high solar angle
