The first lunar image is above and to the left is Gari setting up the new telescope. It looks like a behemoth that would be difficult to image with, but this first example showing rilles on the floor of Humboldt suggests that we will have many future treats to savor! Good luck with the new scope, Gari, and send in those images!
