Here's a close up of Copernicus taken with my Takahashi Mewlon 250 and a ToUcam 840. 50 best frames of 1200 in poor seeing.

Diameter: 93km
Depth: 3.8km
Central peaks rise some 4oom from the floor of the crater

Carpe Noctum

Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth.
- Ptolemy,c.150 AD
