The other morning I captured a whole Moon mosaic.  I got some good sunset light on Mons Rumker and decided to share.  Taken with an 8" EdgeHD, ZWO ADC, and a QHY183C camera.  Presented at 75% native capture scale.  The Agricola Mountains are visible right on the terminator and possibly the very peak of Mons Herodotus just catching the last light.  I also like the wrinkle ridges visible near Mons Rumker.  Enjoy and be sure to click the image for the fuller size!

Nice shot of the volcanic pile!  It doesn't get enough press as something to tour during a viewing session.

Excellent image of Mons Rumker and the Agricola Mountains, Aeroman. 

And all this on a waning Luna!

I wonder how "old" the moon was when you took your image. 

It was certainly not far from New Moon. 

 

Clear skies, 

 

Aubrey.

Thanks for the compliments John, Kutno, and Aubrey, as well as those who provided the likes.

The Moon was 12 days and 8 to 9 hours old with 12.3% illumination.  The elevation was only 30 degrees and I used an ADC.

Very nice image, Steve, with dramatic soft lighting.  I like it!

Large Shield Volcanoes on the Moon  mentions Rumker.
