From his observatory near Osoyoos, British Columbia, Jack Newton normally uses his Imaging Source CCD camera to image the Sun. But not always. Newton writes, “The camera takes 30 frames per second and also works on the Moon.”

He used RegiStax software to combine the 1,200 individual frames recorded for this image of 225-km-diameter crater Clavius and neighbouring 163-km-wide Maginus.
