Sinus Iridum and the Neximage 5
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Here is a image of the moon from earlier in the week. It shows what is called the Sinus Iridum which is located on the lower left of the moon. The darker crater just North of Sinus iridum is called “Plato”. Most of the large craters seen in this image can easily be seen with binoculars. Plato is quite large at 61 miles across!.
This is without question the most detailed shot of the Sinus Iridum I have ever taken!!.
