Pictures of Scott and Schomberger craters, on the edge of the Moon, through the telescope.

       Schomberger and Scott craters are located near the lunar south pole. This area is where it could be said that the Moon looks like cheese.
Scott is a large crater of 108 km in diameter. From the angle seen from Earth, is very difficult to see it because of its position. If we fly over it, you'll see that is a crater without a defined shape. Scott is much closer to the edge of the Moon than Schomberger whose floor is visible.
