Won’t be doing this every night, I promise, but here’s this evening’s photograph. Possibly the crater you see at the South (bottom) is Tycho, which as any lunar observer knows dominates the full Moon with its extensive ray system, but here is only just visible in the dawn light.
I suspect the (low) quality of these images is likely quite similar to the view of Galileo when he first turned a telescope skywards four centuries ago.
