Schickard crater formation on the Moon-images through the telescope.

Do not think that crater Schickard it is oval in shape. Seen just above him, it is very round.

The impact that formed the crater Schickard, occurred in an area predominantly high. This was followed by an episode of flooding that occurred both inside and outside the crater Schickard, which took place before the impact that formed Mare Orientale.
 Another episode of flooding followed, creating a thin layer of material that covered the areas that were affected by the first episode of flooding.
 A final episode of flooding occurred within the crater Schickard, creating two spots that can be seen today.
