  • The "L"-shaped mountain at 43° north/ 11° east (the Lamech plateau; west of Lamech, in the northern part of the Montes Caucasus) is an interesting telescopic target during Full Moon, when the western slope of its north-south oriented part, and the southern slope of its east-west oriented part, look very much like an illuminated "L" or "sunlit corner". It is unofficially called Mons Elbruz by Danny Caes (note: the Terrestrial Mount Elbruz is also located in the Caucasus range). - DannyCaes Jan 23, 2008
