Moon Mare Crisium

The Moon was just starting to show itself in the Western Sky. I decided to do some close up photography. The image is of Mare Crisium. The magnification was about 312 X. I got this magnification using my 4X Tele Vue Powermate. I think the detail turned out well considering the moon was low in the Western Sky at the time the picture was taken.
