Using a Questar 3.5 at 200x and an estimated 300x, I was able to easily see domes around each of the three craters.
Tomorrow, if the clear weather holds, we should see a wonderful sunrise over Aristarchus. Stay tuned.

Wow! I was not aware of all those others there, only the hortensius group. Thanks for that. I'll have to wait until next time, whenever that may be. New goal for me!
No photos from last night, but here is another image showing the "Sea of Islands" field of domes.

Just visited tonight this interesting region. I did this quick sketch to identify later on at home which domes I saw

With a Sun elevation of 3-5* the domes should stand out nicely!
