Early in a lunation we are treated to this feature spending several nights on or near the terminator. This large crater is a beautiful sight with it's large rimae criss-crossing and curving across the floor of Janssen. Oddly enough I had never notice the mountains on the floor of Fabricius to the north, but then I've never had this kind of resolution on this area.

This time we have a single image, not a montage. It was the result of 600/3000 stacked images with AutoStakkert further processed with GIMP.
