Astrophotographer Tom Orff took this Moon picture of the three major lunar craters; Theophilus, Cyrillus and Catharina, on the 28th April 2001 from Shenandoah PA, USA. Image was acquired with a Starlight Xpress MX516 CCD camera and an 8″ Celestron Starhopper Dobsonian with a Dob Driver II at 3x prime focus (3600mm focal length (at f/18) with a TeleVue 3x barlow).
