Very crisp images Andy :)

As a child, I was inspired seeing Sinus Iridum through my small scope and then finding out just what it was. The beautiful "Bay of Rainbows" is a 150 mile diameter impact crater, flooded with basaltic lava during the formation of Mare Imbrium which destroyed half the crater wall. The remaining wall section is called Montes Jura.

Sometimes when the terminator is nearby, the arc of the shining peaks of Montes Jura can be seen protruding from the blackness at the edge of the illuminated moon, when it is called "The Jewelled Handle".

Chinas Chang'e 3 spacecraft was due to land in the bay last December but actually landed just outside it in Mare Imbrium.

I've considered the moon as light pollution for far too long and feel it is about time I re-visited this very scenic place :)

I feel the same way about the moon, but when its up it makes imaging DSO's with a One shot colour camera a chore.

My master plan is to image Planetary/moon when DSO imaging isn't worthwhile.

Luna 17 landed just outside Sinus Iridum in 1970 and lasted for nearly 1 year.

Beautiful Andy...absolutely beautiful. There are some awesome pics of the moon at the minute on here. Love the detail on this in the South..really brings it to life. Just like Leighs pic it's like you can reach out and touch it.

Beautiful shots.

It was seeing that through binoculars a few years ago (and not knowing what it was) that lead me to EMS in the first place.
