Schickard Crater Region on the occultation morning.

42 frames to 95% best quality in Registax.

The images shown here are from the same morning Jupiter-Moon occultation took place, and these are video processings in Registax program.

In the moment this crater, Schickard (227 km), was filmed, Jupiter was behind Moon, the occultation of the two bodies being underway.
Images are upside down, as seen through the telescope.

Schickard crater is near terminal on this phase of the Moon. The angle from which the Sun 
enlightens the area, makes the craters appear to be more different than the other phases, and give the impression that they are shallower and have lower edges.
