50mm f/10 achromat at 30x

 

This evening's object of interest: the 190km walled plain Janssen and surrounding area.  Janssen was chosen due to its prominence and its somewhat unusual appearance.  This large feature displayed a dark floor in the east and west, but sported what looked a bit like a thick, bright backbone running through its center from north to south.

 

Other craters observed in the immediate area were: Brenner (97km), Metius (88km), Fabricius (78km), Fabricius A, Steinheil (67km), and Watt (66km).
