Three fabulous craters!

The Moon was well-placed tonight to photograph the south polar region: the terminator crossed from pole to pole, heightening the shadows and allowing fabulous views of my three favourite craters: the giant Clavius, pock-marked by later impacts, Copernicus, with its quadruple central peak and terraced walls and Tycho, with its bright ray system that crosses much of the lunar surface. Taken with a Sigma 150-500 and 1.4 x converter.
