These photographs contain south craters of the Moon in shadow. Videos of these captures you can see here Clavius crater in the dark-video through the telescope.
Along the southern edge of the Moon, crater Moretus has terraced walls, a flat  floor and peaks in the middle.In the images above you can't see any crater floor, but only central peaks that are reached by sunlight, as is Moretus, or just smaller craters inside the crater Clavius​​, as Clavius ​​C and D that looks like two rings on a plate.
          Moretus's central peaks are reached by the sunlight because the eastern wall of the crater is lower, allowing the rays to toch them.

Above picture is processed in registax from 233 frames.

<For those who like the pictures of my articles, would be nice to pay attention on advertising that appear in the blog by a click, because it is the only way I could buy one day a better telescope.>
