This is an image of Mare Crisium (Sea of Crises) on the moon’s terminator on 26th May 2013.  It was taken using the Toucam 740k through the Skywatcher 200P f6, and then stacked in Registax.  You can see the tips of the mountains around the western edge of the Mare just coming into the sun, so appearing as floating dots above the surface.  If you watch these areas over an evening you can often see changes in the size of these dots as the lunar sunrise progresses.
