When imaging the moon near first quarter last month I wanted to get a good shot of the area of the Sea of Tranquility and the landing spot of Apollo 11.
 
The attached image that I captured on July 24, 2012 show that position. While the site is near the easy to find craters Ritter & Sabine, so that was approximately where I centered the image.
 
The actual landing area is located near some very small obscure craters named "Armstrong, Collins & Aldrin" after the crew of Apollo 11.
 
After checking Virtual Moon Atlas, I believe I have accurately labeled the craters and the approximate landing site where Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin landed the "Eagle" on July 20, 1969.
 
The first shot attached I labeled identifying craters and the landing area while the next image has no label and is the same image as I originally captured it.
 
Interestingly the picture was taken with a CPC 1100 telescope and a Chameleon camera in my back yard on July 24, 2012 at 9:14 pm. Exactly 43 years ago to the day when the crew of Apollo 11 returned to earth on July 24, 1969.
