These photos are the clearest images of the south area I ever made. In them, all craters are oval, the more outward you look, due to their position on the Moon.

There are many craters in this area, a common feature to the southern region of the Moon. The biggest in size, are neighboring craters Vlacq and Rosenberger, which are similar both in shape and size.

  Notice the beautiful mountain in the center of the crater Vlacq (89 km), and that of Rosenberger (96 km) which is more dull. Another large crater that stands out in these images is Hommel (120 km). On the edges of the north-east and north-west are two small craters, Hommel A and C. In Hommel A, is observed another crater, and smaller, called Hommel V.

   North of Hommel (Note that the images are upside down as seen through the telescope, and for better observation of the crater), is Pitiscus (82 km).

Images are processings from Registax, of a video from which were taken a variety of shots, merged to form a single image.
