I did a little more sharpening and added a precise label to where the exact landing site of Apollo 14 is. It is roughly 30 miles north of the northern rim of Fra Mauro. I like to use the craters Fra Mauro Y, J, and D to guide myself to the location of the site. Under low sun angle, I can see the site location just off the west edge of a small low ridge, although the finer craters used in final navigation by the descending astronauts are not visible in my scope. Clear skies to you.

Thanks, Geoff and Dana!

Thank you David for the annotation. I've been working on a presentation of all of the Apollo sites imaged through my telescope. Lets me follow in their footsteps.
