Just took a quick look at the waning Moon in the west, after checking the Sun this morning with my 80mm refractor. 10.15 UT, seeing Ant III. Put a w25 red filter on my x80 eyepiece and was startled at the sight. At x113 a blood red Moon was limned and limbed with bone white ramparts of the inner Rook Mountains of Mare Orientale fringed with the dark veins of Lacus Veris and L. Autumni.
Kind thoughts, Bob

Had another look this morning at 10.20 UT after projecting the Sun (no spots - in fact I last recorded a spot on June 25, although I have missed quite a few days). Libration is still favourable enough to see L. Veris and L. Autumni and the inner Rooks white on the limb. A good view at x60, no filter, with 80mm Refractor. Another forum reports the libration as most favourable in late August last. Bob
