Just after sunset the seeing conditions were very good and observing visually with a magnification of 355x was quite easy.

Things did deteriorate over the next 90 minutes somewhat but some decent imaging was still possible.

The prominent crater here is Moretus 114km in diameter. visually it was the most striking crater visible on the Moon.
