Thank you very much, I am working on a few more shots from the same evening, I hope that I will be able to get something interesting from this material. :-)

Super shot, Lukas

 

The wonderful ray system (and darker annular material around Tycho) always reminds me of the 'trio' on the farside -- that of Jackson, Ohm and Vavilov. Like Tycho itself, each has an impact-developed history, but as to what that was is another story to be explored.

Thanks John! Tycho's ray system is really spectacular, and for some reason it's blueish - I wonder why... It is worth recalling that the soil samples on the basis of which the age of Tycho was estimated were collected at the landing site of Apollo 17 in the northern hemisphere - over 2 K km (some 1,4 K miles) from the crater! This shows what the true extent of the explosion that formed this crater was.

OK, let's be honest. Photoshop helps sometimes ;-)
