Good evening, everyone:

 

Inspired by a thread I came across by Tom Glenn from September 2018, I noticed two nights ago that I could see features on or near the south pole (not having paid attention to libration). Using Tom's great images as a jumping off point, I used as many orbiter images to identify features. Here is tonight's image.  If I got any wrong, please let me know.

 

1959 Cave Astrola 10" f/7.1 w/Neximage 10

20% of 1225 frames; Firecapture/ASI2/Registax/Paint.net

 

Clear skies,

 

Guy

Very nice. This region of the Moon has been a favorite visual and imagining target for many decades.
