Alpine Valley

Image taken October 15, 2010, 7:30 pm CDT.  Moon ~8.25 days old

Canon T1i camera on 16-in Jones-Bird Telescope with 2.5X Powermate (5,000 mm FL).  Stack of about 200 subframes processed in AVIStack 2.0 and then with Astra Image Lucy-Richardson deconvolution.

There is a hint of the rille in the bottom.  The rather sharp mountain the the Imbrium plain is Piton and Cassini is the crater on the lower edge.
