In color images of this area are many of the central features of the Moon, as seen from Earth.
Sinus Medii, a basin that it has some notable craters on its surface, here has a greenish color which I think is not the result of some aberrations of the optical system of the telescope, and these images are the result of processing in Registax program in which are optimized many finest frames of a video. In this way, the image quality resulting from the processing is one much better than a video frame, like the one below where I labeled craters, in which we barely perceive colors.
Among notable craters in the images, we see Triesnecker (26 km), Bruce (7 km), Blagg (5.4 km) and Chladni (14 km), which are located on Sinus Medii, and Pallas (50 km), Murchison (58 km), Rheaeticus (43x49 km) Dumbowsky (26 km), Mosting (26 km), Ukert (23 km), which are craters surrounding Sinus Medii.
