I took the telescope out for a go at some lunar shots for the first time in a few years last night.

With the direct side lighting from the Sun you get the most detail close the the terminator, whereas the righthand side of the moon has overhead lighting and so does not show much detail.

The side lighting then shows up the changes in elevation of the lunar surface, most obvious in the bright crater 'Copernicus'. One of my other favourite pieces of geography can be seen in the chain of mountains towards the top of the image, a straight feature known as the Alpine Valley. The second version is the same shot with some labelled features.
