Thanks guys; I'm not a lunar specialist but the thing never ceases to amaze me in all its ever-changing but timeless glory. Every time I image the Moon I find something I hadn't noticed before, in this case it was the faint & incomplete circular structure surrounding Schröter's Valley with Aristarchus at the "4 o clock" position on its edge - remnants of a large crater buried under the maria basalt, an artifact associated with the impact that produced Aristarchus or an optical illusion?
