The Straight Wall

Hi all.

A while back there was a discussion about the Straight Wall on the Moon. At the time I mentioned that just after 3rd quarter phase, it was possible to see the Wall as a bright line, rather than as a dark line as it appears when the Moon is waxing.

A few nights ago I was able to image the Wall as a bright line, and here is the image. It is a 0.01 sec image taken with an SBIG ST-8 CCD, binned 2x2, and attached to the prime focus of a 16" f/15 refractor.
