So, after a few weeks of horrible viewing, tonight was crisp and clear, although a little breezy.  I decided to check out my LPI, with hopes of getting good results and using it for the eclipse.  Concidering this is my first attempt, I think that it went pretty well.  I wish that I had imaged a different section of the Moon, somewhat closer to an edge, but...what the hell do I know?! 
Photo taken with an ETX 125 PE, and LPI.  Settings pretty much just set at their "defaults."  No other sort of "post-proccessing" done.

Not a bad first attempt, looks like Tycho but I could be wrong.

Good luck with the eclipse and hope the skies stay clear.

Looks good for a first image.
Focus may be a tad off but other than that it is a good start.

I don't think there is a telescope capable of seeing the landing sites.
