Hello,

two days ago I was observing the Moon with Telementor (C63/840) and there was an interesting hilly region near Gruithuisen domes. Later, I found out, that these hills have nice poetic name: Montes Herbinger. Indeed, even though Aristarchos was still well within the dark side of the Moon, half of its walls were already lit by Sun. Very nice view. Ok, here is my humble sketch (on click full version with more info):
