Only part of Mare Crisium could be seen and part of Fecunditatis. All other Mare were readily seen and identified. Sinus Iridium and Sinus Roris were also located.

(B) - 2 craters on N shore of Mare Imbrium.
(C) - Grimaldi and Hevelius - these seemed to have moved more easterly than the last time observed.
Tycho and some of its rays also observed.

Although no shadows, cold make out structures of the Haemus and Jura Mountains.

I did not look at all the features closely.
