Image Details:

Lunar Day 9 reveals 3 of the Moon's exceptional features: Copernicus, Tycho and Clavius craters.
In the 150X images, you can see 2 of Copernicus' central peaks, Tycho's central peak and the numerous craterlets within Clavius.
In the 60X image, you can already see the impact rays coming from Copernicus and Tycho, which become very prominent near Full Moon. Also note the differences in reflectivity across the Lunar surface (albedo).
You don't just look at the Moon, you observe it. But I reckon that should be true about everything you see.
