Two more Moonshots. 21 & 22-day Moon

Here are two more Moonshots from the Window-sill. The 21-day one is interesting insofar as you can see Tycho unusually lit on the terminator. It is only usually really obvious at full-moon when its ray system dominates the view.

After a bit of processing, you can also see the “straight wall”, (Rupes Recta) lit from the other side to what you normally see it. Since it is an escarpment, it now appears as a bright line rather than a dark one.
