Montes Apenninus and the Moon’s tallest mountain

on Wednesday, April 11, 2018

The Apenninus Mountains are one of my favorite locations to image on the moon. It is also home to our moons tallest mountain, Mons Huygens, which stands 3.4 miles tall! I never get tired of imaging this region, each time trying to get more details. Thus far, this is my best wide-field view to date of this mountain range. I hope you like it!
