Prominent and easily visible craters, older Ptolemaeus and younger Alphonsus, are visible through binoculars.
In this video, Alphonsus's east wall shadow, nearly covers a quarter of it's floor. From this, we can figure out the shapes of the peaks and their height.
Central peak of Alphonsus is lit by the sun, shining strong. Alpetragius crater is in total darkness.
Video is upside down as seen through the telescope.
