These images were taken on October 25, the day after the Full Moon, but still with 99.4% illumination. The full Moon is not normally thought of as a good time to observe, because of the lack of a prominent terminator to enhance shadows, however, with a targeted approach it can still yield very nice views. There is almost always a tiny terminator on one limb or the other (in this case it was on the Eastern limb), and the regions near the poles never have high sun angles and so always look pretty nice. In this case a Northern libration aided here as well. This occasion was not one of "excellent" seeing conditions as I sometimes get, but it was good enough to provide some nice views. I will first post the complete Moon, and then a few close ups, each in separate posts because of file sizes. You will need to click for larger sizes.
