A Perfect View

This is one of the most wonderful views you can see through an eyepiece. I always start observing with a low power view of the entire Moon, just as Jordillo has captured here. I look to see what is showing up along the terminator for later high power examination. And then I look a little further into the bright zone, to see features that will be great to observe with about 30° lighting. Finally I scan the limb to see what features - such as the Orientale dark mare patches - lean our way. Then I put in a shorter focal length eyepiece and repeat the process.
