Nice bit of zoom! Seems sharper in the top corner than in the middle, but still one heck of an achievement. The moon rocks. Literally.

I don't know if I am more impressed with the quality of the shot or the fact you know the names of the features!

Neat idea! Ignoring color, it ends up looking like a low-orbit view of the Earth. And wow, what must the full-size pic of the whole moon look like! 7.
