On the north limb, there was a jagged edge that caught my attention.

Acquired a large view of Mare Imbrium/Sinus Iridum over the terrain to Mare Frigoris through to the north limb.

Beautiful view of the craters on the terminator and those adjacent. So many were so clearly defined!

Mare Humorum craters were drawn in IWLOP.
