Craters on the Moon Hagecius and Biela images.

243 frames in Registax.

In these images processed in Registax, we see many craters located near the southern end of our natural satellite, the Moon, as we see it from Earth.

Observe crater with Hagecius (76km) with Hagecius A (61 km) which seems like a spoon under these lighting conditions.

Hagecius has many small satellite craters that are found on the floor and around it. Their names can be seen labeled in the picture above.

Another interesting crater is Biela (76 km), which has a shadowed floor at this phase of the Moon and that is why it appears to be deeper than it actually is. It is the same size like Hagecius.

Other craters that are neighbors of the above ones, are Nearch and Rosenberger.
