Hey All, I'm starting to work my way through observing all features on the Orion Moon Map 260 and was wondering if anyone has any good lists of features only visible during librations? You know, besides having a moon globe at my telescope's side 😋

Limb/Libration-related features related LPOD's, arranged in a "clockwise" fashion.
