Mare Humorum

Series of short exposures through a near-infrared filtre was obtained of the waning Moon at sunrise on January 12 (at about 10 hrs UT), i.e. about 5 days before New Moon (24.3 days "old"). This image displays the Mare Humorum area in the south-east quadrant with the crater Gassendi overlapping the northern rim. Several 0.1 sec exposures were made through a near-infrared filtre (856 nm; FWHM 14 nm) with small offsets were recombined (to cover the gaps between the individual CCDs); otherwise, the image is raw.
