Eratosthenes (58 km), is a crater more difficult to catch in picture or video, because it is located on the center of the Moon's and the edge is difficult to focus when in light. It's a pretty short period of time to catch it in the shadow.For example, a day before I captured it in photo and video and was half in darkness, and after a day, it was in light (ie in the photos of this post ), and it was the most successful capture of this crater that I have ever achieved.
Copernicus (93 km), crater nearby, is the same difficult, but it is larger and the camera focuses even when the Sun shines it more.
In the third photo in the article are Montes Carpatus or Carpathian Mountains, and Sinus Aestuum (plateau to the left).
