Scoresby crater-Moon crater images through telescope

In the photo above, the crater that is completely under the shadow,is Philolaus, which has an area of 71 km. (click on link to see it in light). Mouchez crater of 82 km, is the right of Philolaus.

        About crater Scoresby (56 km), I have not talked, but I mentioned it in other articles, but now I've captured it when the Moon is inclined forward, which makes the crater floor to be more visible.
Scoresby is a Moon impact crater located on the north side. Crater is nearly attached to Challis (56 km) along the northwestern edge (crater Main-56 km, is united with Challis to the north), and is located just north of Meton crater (122 km). Because of its location, this crater appears oval when viewed from Earth, appearing in elliptical shape. It is, however, very circular when seen on top of it.
Scoresby has a depth of 2.4 km, and has an outer wall with sharp edges. It is not marked by other impacts.
Inside is a prominent central peak formation consisting of three mountainous ridges, visible in the photos above.
Other craters in the images below are Goldschmidt and Anaxagoras, W. Bond, Epigenes, and bottom  begins Mare Frigoris.
