Like many of your pics, but my favorite the one with Aristarchus and Herodotus craters. Vallis Sheroteri also well captured as well as Mons Herodotus.

Schickard.




Ah, I'm afraid not. The large walled plain to the right of center is J. Herschel, with Mare Frigoris dominating the rest of the picture. Schickard is way way out of the picture (near the southwestern lunar limb) and is somewhat better defined. Clear skies to you.

Very nice. My favorite is the Aristarchus plateau as well.

Thanks, buddyjesus. It's a pretty interesting part of the Moon. The more I learn the more curious I become, and all the questions about volcanism and the Marius Hills and the various rilles (etc, etc) I find fascinating. It's familiar and alien, Earthlike but incredibly lifeless. I could go on and on, of course.
