Very nice photo! I like that you can see evidence of craters past in Ptolemaeus.

Thanks pedrete, Geoff, Kutno, Grey and Ed. I like how you can see from the shadows the relative depths of the three craters.

I just love what you guys do... The Moon is a target I often pick to observe, and looking at your photographs gives me more idea of what I am looking AT...

Wow! That detail is there but I wouldn't have realized if you don't had specified it. Thanks.

I would recommend lowering the gamma to help improve the contrast and get rid of the noisy glow inside the shadowed areas of the image, as well as using a little sharpening to perk up the detail. Here is what I did with it using the old Ulead PhotoImpact software:
