Crater Maurolycus

i all,
Crater Maurolycus taken late last year.

Maurolycus is named for Italian mathematician, Francesco Maurolico (1494-1575). He was a colleague of bad-boy painter, Caravaggio, and correspondent with the Jesuit astronomer, Christopher Clavius.

Barocius - Francesco Barozzi (1537-1604) was another Italian maths whiz and sorcerer. Apparently he was a fan of Nostradamus among others.

Baco, the Latinised form of Roger Bacon (1214-1294) was an English friar and expounder of some of the earliest work on the scientific method.

Gemma Frisius (1508-1555) was known for his excellent map making and set the standard for the "Golden Age" of Navigation in later years.

Walter Goodacre (1856-1938) was a British amateur astronomer who served as Director of the society's Lunar Section for 40 years!

Ideler, named for German chronologist and mathematician, Christian Ludwig Ideler.

ZWO 178mm camera, Celestron 9.25" telescope. Approx. 2,000 frames stacked in Autostakkert!3 and sharpened in Registax.

Lovely image of some of the lesser known areas and craters with some info on the naming etc. Where are you getting the info from, thought it may have been from Rukls' Atlas of the Moon but on checking in mine , not the case.

Hi Jeff,
A mixture of good ol Wikipedia, general searches on craters, people etc and stuff that has been rattling around inside the skull for decades!

I think I must be making up for all the school projects I didn't do or did very little on. I was the kid with the last minute project.
Richard
