Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Crater Aristarchus

An area that caught my eye as I was photographing the moon last night was crater Aristarchus and its surrounding area.  This was also one of my better images taken.  I also took the liberty to resample the stack 2X to better show the landscape around the bright rayed crater in the northwestern quadrant of the lunar surface.  Vallis Schroten is very well defined also.

This is the X2 image, cropped to show the area of interest.

These images were taken on 8/13/11 around 1:00AM local time using the 127mm refractor with the green filter and the 3X barlow.
