There are many craters of all sizes in these images, a common feature to the south of the Moon. The largest in size is Stofler (126 km) and Maurolycus (114 km).
The difference between the two as shown in pictures, is that Stofler has a floor with a half moon shape, because on it is superimposed another smaller crater, Faraday (70 km).
Over the entire area is sprayed the ejections from the impact that created the crater Tycho.
The images are very clear, if we consider that these are video captures.
