Apollo 15 Landing Site

Several moon pics posted recently, so here is my effort from a few years ago.
This was shot through an 8" telescope, 2000mm fl, with eyepiece projection. Gives a really long effective focal length.

I've never seen such a close-up of the moon before. Very nicely done!

Serene, yet almost eerie. Hope to take similar photos with my Dad's 8" reflector if we ever get it to balance with the K100D on the back...
