In these images, on the Moon's terminal on its east side, there are some pretty big craters in size, but are immersed in darkness. Crater Messala (124 km), lies north of Geminus. Its characteristics can not be observed being shrouded in shadow. Only the outer edge of the west is seen, hinting that there is a crater.
At Geminus (86 km), we can observe in the light only a little of its east inner edge.
Continuing westward (to the left of the image), craters begin to be away from the darkness, and we start from Berzelius (51 km), which has a flooded floor, and Franklin (56 km), with a mountanous floor and terraced inner edges. Cepheus (40 km), lies northwest of Franklin.
Images are processings in Registax of a video that have taken a various number of shots, merged to form a single image.
