Hey all, I was reading the September edition of Sky&Telescope. I came across a fascinating article by Charles Wood titled "The Moon’s Biggest Cold Spot" I'm planning on concentrating on this region while I observe the moon this moonth. If anyone is interested in observing the craters in the area, feel free to share your observations on this thread.

 

The are includes the crates Burg, Hercules, Atlas, and Chevallier

awesome shot, there's so much going on in this area. I'm looking up some resources to understand Lunar geology a little better.

Diomedes...Take a look at the LRO online interactive map, start with “Nomenclature” to get your orientation then go to the various overlays...Frigoris is an amazing place, with the Burg area alone worth a lot of nights viewing....also the unnamed valley to the west of Baily is a miniature Valle Alpes...
