Enviable equipment, absolutely superb panorama! Perhaps not the sharpest, but surely worthy of entering the category of the most memorable lunar images I've seen here. Just has that special something...

 

Thank you for sharing!

Spectacular composition.  Very minor atmospheric distortion.  Maks rule, I don't believe there is another scope that images the Solar System as well as a Mak. They do have an amazing ability to take extremely high powered ep's with a Barlow as well

Fantastic image! From the time I looked at the Moon through my Tasco refractor when I was nine and observed Montes Apenninus, it has always been my favorite part of the Moon to observe.

 

Whenever it is clear (or even partly cloudy if it works) and around first quarter, I always try to observe the Apennines through whatever I feel like or have available, from my 10x30 binoculars all the way up to my 24" SpicaEye.

 

Never gets old.
