14″ (355mm diameter) F/5 homemade Newtonian, a Baader 2.25x Barlow lens, a red filter, and ASI120MM-S camera. Seeing conditions 8-9/10
A large and interesting crater both due to the presence of a large rille on it’s floor and a large dome-like feature (towards the right, just outside the crater’s rim).
