Everything was perfect Saturday night when I captured this image of Alphonsus and  Ptolemaeus.  I counted probably three dozen craterlets

inside Ptolemaeus including Catena Davy and another crater chain to the right of Ptolemaeus.  I used my 9.25 SCT with a 2X Barlow and a

ZWO ASI120MM monochrome camera.  This is my finest image of the moon so far.

Very nicely done! The 9.25 SCT and barlow combination really zeroes it in.

Very good image Steve.  I actually think your Straight Wall image is slightly more resolute, but this is quite good as well.
