Hi Clive,
Like the shot! 
Had a scan through Virtual Moon Atlas and I think you've Rima Draper just right of center, with the bright wall of Tobias Mayer A illuminated in mid shot. The Montes Carpatus extend from Rima Draper down to the bottom right of shot, with Gay-Lussac near R/H corner.
10" Meade SCT, 16" Meade Starfinder Reflector on Dob Mount, 120mm Skywatcher refractor on EQ5 mount and 40mm PST scope family and assorted radio astro kit to get set up some day!  Images with Canon 1100d and QHY5-IIC and more luck than judgement!
