Just got an ES moon filter. Now I don't have to shine a flashlight in my eye when I back away from the eyepiece. Of course I had to put up with a week of clouds before I could use it. Clavius crater was amazing at 255x. It's my favorite crater right now. What's your favorite crater?

Nice! I use polarizing filters at the eyepiece to cut the brightness. My favorite is a little passed over crater called Dembowski. My view of it in 1974 is what got me started in astronomy. I thought I discovered it since it wasnt on  my moon map. In my defense I was only 13. Still, whenever its conveniently placed I never forget to seek it out.
