Hi all,

here the last image from my latest lunar session:

The westside of Lacus Mortis (Lake of death shocked ) show an interesting rille system (Rimae Burg) nearby crater Burg. South of Burg can the much older crater Plana be seen, named after the mathematician Giovanni Plana. It's floor seems to be flooded by lava execpt for the central peak.

Cheers & clear skies,

Excellent image Oliver, even more so for such poor conditions.
