Amundsen - 27.4.2023 at 20.15 Ulvila Observation number 115712

Visibility I / V

Vesa Puistovaara, Porin Karhunvartijat

There were quite good conditions for observing the moon's south pole in terms of libration: latitude about -6 degrees.

Early in the morning, the Amundsen crater was chosen as the destination, which I imagined a little better that I would also be able to photograph. Well, the data was saved after a bit of effort, and the end result is not the best, but the crater can still be seen in the picture.

The picture is upside down (south at the top, north at the bottom)...for some reason, it's easier for me, at least, to visualize and recognize the shapes of the surface.
