The nigth of Oct 18th is cloudy,but the libration is compatible to observe the Mare Marginis.So I watched and take photos through a break in the clouds with awful seeing.

Mare Marginis swirls is the most difficult to see which is ranked at the last in Lunar 100.I tried to observe but only see a few white stripes,with great contrast on grey background.I'm not sure if I really saw swirls.

Then I took pictures to share for your guys.

Definitely a tough target. Nice work and good use of the favorable libration!!

Nice shot.  I am doing an article for the ALPO monthly newsletter The Lunar Observer about these Marginis Swirls (Lunar 91-100 targets to be exact).  This will be in the November 2021 issue.  Please feel free to contact me if you would like to include these images.  You can see The Lunar Observer in this forum.
