Apollo 16 landing site.

The Cayley plains is just left of centre. The Apollo landing site is almost dead centre. Just in between the gap of those mountains.
This is a 4 image mosaic, taken with C9.25, 2.5 x TV Powermate, red filter and DMK21AF04AS. Processed in Registax 5 and CS4.
The seeing was average.
I went out the night before to collimate the scope after all the fun and games with the secondary mirror and guess what? it didn't need any :-0
