Grasslands Observatory:  The Moon

Lunar features are usually listed by their Latin names as taken from Rukl 2004.

Web cam images of Lunar craters were initially taken with a Philips ToUcam on the 24-inch telescope at f/10 (120 inches; 3048 mm) by jem.  The present Lunar web cam imaging is by tbh and jem.  It used the C-14 telescope at f/11 (154 inches; 3912 mm) and at f/22 (308 inches; 7823 mm) combined with a Philips ToUcam or with a Lumenera SKYnyx camera.
