I took this pic at 20 o'clock on 2.21 2021 GMT+8 in Anhui China,when the moon is the first quarter moon,which is the best time to shot or appreciate.

450 frames made by C11HD and Asi 290mm  were superimposed,in which include Mare Imbrium,Plato,Cassini,Vallis Alpes, Montes Recti in shadow.

Great image, thank you for sharing.  Beautiful country in that province, the Huangshan mountains are just gorgeous.  I visited the area when I was working in Shoaxing. Thanks Chen!

Yes back in the states.  I have visited China 8 times in the past 10 years for work a week to 3 weeks each time.   Wonderful country and the people are great!  Every free time spent as a tourist.grin.gif   I especially like to go to the temples, they are exquisite, especially the mountain temples.
