Schiller, Mare Humorum and Mare Frigoris

Last night I shot some images of a 10-day-old-moon. Here are the first results. A detailed report with more images will be published in the Solar System section on my website. All images where shot with the TAL 100RS (4-inch refractor), a 25mm Vixen Lanthanum eyepiece, the Nikon Coolpix 4500 and three Baader filters: IR/UV filter, Contrast Booster and Fringe Killer.
