Michael Khan made this montage of the Moon from the images he took from January 31 to February 6, 2012 in Darmstadt, Germany.
“The sky is much clearer today that it was yesterday. Due to libration effects, regions beyond 90 deg Western longitude are visible. Conversely, the lunar surface near 90 deg Eastern longitude is not observable, which is why the Mare Crisium is now so close to the limb.”

Camera: Unmodified Canon 1000d.
