NE corner of the moon showing Mare Serenitatis. The crater in the far north of the picture is known as crater Aristoteles and measures approximately 53 miles in diameter. This image and the one below were captured within a few minutes of each other. As shown above it is possible with careful alignment to create a composite image showing a larger area of the moon - the walled plain Posidonius was used as an alignment feature.
