Santbech Crater on the Moon. Video by astronomical telescope.

Although you would not say, Santbech crater (64 km), has striking resemblance to the bigger Copernicus crater (93 km), but because of his position, it appears oval, seen from Earth, because there is more closer to the edge of the Moon. But if they were swich their places, you would not realize that Copernicus had been replaced.

The two craters. looks exactly the sameon the shape, the beautiful terraced inner walls, and the central peaks, but less in size.
 Outside area of Santbech, is smooth all around ituntil begin an uneven and hilly areas.

Notice Monge crater (37 km) below in video images and Biot B (28 km),  flooded crater, surrounded by mountains. The small crater Biot (13 km) is in the middle of a flat area, in the eastern part of Santbech (Note that the image is inverted). I would say that this crater belongs to Fecunditatis Basin, to its extreme southern area.

On the terminal, the edge of shadow and light on the left, notice a dark crater with the edge lit by the Sun. This is the crater Wrottesley (57 km).
