Project record Lunar Domes (Lunar Domes Chart by Charles A. Kapral)

A lunar dome is a type of shield volcano that is found on the surface of the Earth's Moon.
They are typically formed by highly viscous, possibly silica-rich lava, erupting from localized vents followed by relatively slow cooling.
Lunar domes are wide, rounded, circular features with a gentle slope rising in elevation a few hundred meters to the mid-point.
Some of the domes contain a small craterlet at the peak.
Some of the domes have been shown to consist of the same materials as the lunar maria.

All images have been taken with an Orion Optics Newtonian 250mm @f/6.3 telescope (lamda/8 optics)
or
Skywatcher BK DOB14" Collapsible 355mm @f/4.5 telescope
mounted on an
EQ6 SYNSCAN or Skywatcher AZ EQ6 German Equatorial mounts. 
A Unibrain Fire-i 785b (Monochrome) camera was used with ATIK motorized filter wheel
or QHY5L-II(High QE!) - Monochrome camera was used with SupaSlim Filter Wheel.
A Televue 3x barlow was used to increase the effective focal length and consequent magnification. 
Image acquisition with Torsten Edelmann's Firecapture software or Fire-i™ Software
