Mare Vaporum   Leave a comment

f/15

616 frames, 960×720. Single alignment point, as the image was moving too much to get a good result without region edges. Near the bottom of the Maria is Manilius D, a tiny crater 3 miles in diameter with a rille running through it. The very bright crater above it is Manilius.

f/9  Pulling back, we can see the Sea of Vapors in context, with the Sea of Serenity and the Alpine Valley to the north.
