I have attached a terminator mosaic at a reduced size of 50% to fit in Mare Tranquilitatis to the crater Sacrobosco with terminator lighting.  I really like the changes in lighting on the wrinkle ridges in Mare Tranquilitatis, the long shadows cast by the Kant Plateau near the middle of the terminator, and the outlined craters of Cyrillus and Catharina to the right hand side with the Altai Scarp.

Nice work!

Sacrobosco is one of my favorite craters, it's always going "oooooo".

Seriously, nice image.

Stunning image, Aeroman. 

But do you notice you have included the elusive Catena Abulfeda which sadly I have never observed?

It's to the left of Sacrobosco.

 

Very best regards from Aubrey.

Yes, I am very familiar with Catena Abulfeda.  It is one of my favorite crater chains.
