The Moon – Plinius area 25/11/2017

Looking out of the window this evening, there was the moon in almost exactly the correct phase to observe Plinius, as described in November’s “Sky at Night” (Page 58). Too good an opportunity to miss, so here is a window-sill image of the said crater and its environs. The 3rd image covers almost the same area as the photo in the magazine.
