Homemade 14inch F/5 Newtonian with SkyWatcher optics. ASI120MM-S camera, Red filter. Baader 2.25x Barlow. Total focal length 6000mm. 1000frames out of 10000 for each mosaic part.
Images showing the trio of craters Ptolemaeus, Alphonsus and Arzachel, the fantastically diverse region around Rima Hadley with Ina volcano visible in lower right, and the even more diverse region of Aristoteles and Eudoxus with Cassini and Vallis Alpes showing a lot of rilles and different type of craters and also mountain chains. Seeing was excellent, 8-9/10. Details in images are around 400 to 500 meters (!).
