Deslandres and the surrounding craters. Astronomical telescope images

These images are very clear, as the camera focus was bestIn the pictures here, we have the huge crater Deslandres (234 km) north of the bright crater Tycho.  To view the telescope video of these photos, go here.

A very bright rays of Tycho with high albedo, are spread on the whole region, but these are not seen in the photos because of the Moon phase at that time, when the Sun was at a low angle.

The picture below explains in great detail all craters located inside of Deslandres, and neighbors, as I labeled them each name with color. Images are inverted as seen through the telescope.

As you can see, this area is very rich in craters of all sizes, feature which is common to the south of the Moon. In these pictures, are craters like: Lexell, Sasserides, Walther, Orontius, Hell, Nonius and others.
