Nice pic . I also observed it the other day, for only the third time since I become a lunar observer 2 years ago. Started to make a sketch but thick clouds rolled in.

Nice shot! I've seen it a few times but never gave it the time that it really deserves. It's back on the todo list again. Thanks.
Be Well

Thanks!
Have to make a sticky to make I dont forget to keep looking for this :)

My photography has improved even though its real hard to do with a Dob.
Seriously considering looking into getting a tracking mount for the Dob.
