Tycho never gets old. Always enjoy observing the detail within Tycho and its surrounds. I especially like the crater chain at 4 o'clock. The good seeing was punctuated by turbulence every few seconds, however, using a short exposure time I could capture enough good frames to build this image. I captured a few other interesting craters, which I'll post later. Also have a pile of Jupiter SER files from early Monday morning to process.

 

C9.25, 2x TV Powermate, Astronomik 2c Red filter, ZWO ASI290MM. Exposure 1.966 ms, Gain 51%, 160 FPS, 10,126 frames, 28% stacked in AS!3.

Very nice detail given your 9.25" aperture.

If you look carefully just near the base of the central peak at 4 o'clock to the central mountain, you will see a tiny craterlet on the floor of Tycho. You'll see the shadow reversed wrt the other small hills. I sharpened this image below a little more to bring that up. Maybe more processed than I like but wanted to show this feature. Images by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter show this lone craterlet.
