Maginus (163 km), is a very affected crater, with a destroyed edge, located north-west of the great crater Clavius on the south side of the Moon. Instead of having a sharp edge, well defined, Maginus has multiple impacts lace edge. The floor is also "riddled" with still a distinguished plateau with some peaks going fron the center to north-east. Maginus's important neighbors are Tycho northwest, and southwest is Clavius.
The most interesting photo in this article, I think is the first one, because of the hue and brightness which makes a very realistic landscape. Tycho is immersed in a completely dark and Maginus against the sunrise, has a lit interior west wall.
