The Lunar 100
A list of of interesting lunar features compiled by Charles A. Wood Ph.D.  They are arranged in order of ascending observation difficulty. These also prove to be a challenge to photograph.  Most of these will give you a larger image by clicking on the image.

I just found out there is a limit to the page length!
I have 14 of the 25 pictured so far (03/30/2011)

A buried ghost crater. Seen here in a picture taken with my Orion 10" reflector.  Lambert R is seen south of Lambert.
 
 
  79  Sinus Aestuum
Eastern dark mantle volcanic deposit. On the east and southeast of S.A. dark deposits can be seen.  This is the same picture (cropped) as in L78
 
 
 80  Orientale Basin
Youngest large impact basin
  
 81  Hesiodus A

Area with many rilles
  
 92 Gylden Valley
Part of the Imbrium radial sculpture

  95  Procellarum Basin
The moon's biggest basin?
