Moon and area of Fra Mauro + video (new)

My home observatory is located right in the garden behind the house, so when I had finally a 15 minutes free time, I did not hesitate and tried to take a look on the Moon through the telescope. It had been quite a long time from my last Moon observation. But now it was still day – or better said – right after the sunset. But it was not a problem for the telescope, so why not to give it a try.

I used only 25 mm eyepiece and attached my mobile phone with the photo-adapter to the eyepiece. Here is the result:
