Clear Night last night so thought I'd get out with a camera. This was taken in my back garden using my D200 attached to a Celestron 80-45 spotting scope set on about 40 times magnification. Not as detailed as I would have liked but a lot of light pollution where I live. Full moon tonight but forecast for my area is cloudy...

Nice image. Do you wonder about the lines radiating out from the crater? I enquired and was told that the impact sends the dust flying and because of the low gravity, it travels a long way.

Paul,

I think what you are referring to is the Tycho crater, thought to have been created by an oblique impact some 100 million years ago. If you notice there are no streaks to the west of the crater suggesting whatever impacted came in low over the Moon's western horizon.
