Tranquility Base

Tranquility Base

Near the Apollo 11 Lunar Module landing site, there is a line of three craters named for Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, & Michael Collins. The smallest is only 2.6 km or about 1.3 seconds of arc in size. These were imaged with a Questar 3.5" telescope, 2x2x Dakin Barlow lenses, and a Sony a6300 camera.
