Two of the largest and most often viewed
crater basins on the lunar southern highlands were in splendid
lighting under exceptional seeing conditions on this evening.
So rare was ths seeing in Payson this night, I took as many shots
as possible, until the good fortune faded in about an hour. Please
also see the prime focus "wide angle" shot I took just
before this one here.
