Colombo crater and surroundings. Telescope Images processed in Registax

279 frames la 80% best quality , gaussian

Observe craters McClure (24 km), McClure D (22 km) and Crozier (22 km), roughly the same in size, forming a triangle. They are located on higher ground. I would not have noticed this if the Moon would not had been at this phase.

Below Colombo (76 km), south-east, is the flooded crater Cook (47 km). The smooth plateau from the right in photo, is Mare Fecunditatis.

Images are processed in Registax of a video from which were taken more frames, merged to form a single image. To view the video of which I processed these images, you can go back to the article: East of lunar craters by telescope in December 2012. The beautiful Gutenberg and Goclenius craters or another, from September 3, 2012: Craters Goclenius Magelhaens and Colombo. Video by telescope.
