Montes Jura by Nightwalker50 Montes Jura by Nightwalker50
Telescopic view (93x) of the Moon's Jura Mountains in a crescent about Sinus Iridum ("Bay of Rainbows"). The small crater atop them is Bianchini, diameter of 24 miles. The large shallower hexagonal-shaped crater near the top of the view is J. Herschel, diameter 96 miles, while more oval 80-mile-wide Pythagoras resides near the limb further to the top left. The Promontorium Laplace shines like a diamond at the left end of these bold relief mountains. What a treat it is to see sunrise of sunset moving over them!

It's especially wonderful when sunrise or sunset is occurring over them.

Thanks for the fave.  I focused as sharply as I could through the eyepiece.
