Copernicus and Eratosthenes, and Carpathian mountains. Also visible in this picture are the craters Reinhold and Fauth. These are visible above and to the left of Copernicus. Reinhold is the upper crater. The image was captured on 2011-04-12 during early evening (19:30), whilst the Moon was between Leo and Gemini. Equipment:SPX 250, 10" F4.8 Orion Optics Newtonian, with a X2 barlow and a QHY5 camera, with a deep red W25 filter. I have noticed how the seeing appears to be more stable, during the last hour before Sunset.

Alex writes: "The attached image was taken on the night before the recent Full Moon. I chose that evening because the following night it would be lower in the sky and the weather forecast was unfavourable.The image is a mosaic of 16 webcam sessions, each centred on the sections of the Moon in Henry Hatfield's Photographic Lunar Atlas. Seeing was Antoniadi III at best, which was disappointing.Colour saturation was applied to enhance the lunar features, especially the maria. The resultant webcam images were stitched together into a mosaic and further slight processing was done to sharpen the image, increase contrast and colour saturation.It was a lot of work. I've no plans to repeat this exercise, but I will take further images of selected areas, such as Mare Tranquillitatis, which seems to have a very mottled nature."
