Below is an image of two lunar craters, Clavius and Tycho. I don't know much about the moon or regions of it never mind craters so these clear nights over the last few days have helped to get to know it a bit better.

Image captured on 13 May 2019 at 20:14 GMT, Moon phase 70% waxing gibbous.

Image taken using the William Optics Z103ED, ZWO ASI174MM with a Baader Neodymium filter. Captured 2,000 frames using SharpCap, stacked in AutoStakkert2 with levels, contrast, brightness and unsharp mask adjustments in Photoshop.

Thank you for checking in.
