In the southern area of the Moon are a very, very large number of craters of all sizes and various shapes.

That is how you can see this region of the Moon through a 8-inch Newtonian telescope, on which I attached to the eyepiece a high resolution video camera, images being processed in the astronomy program, Registax.

There are four craters that have notable sizes or have some more special features, and they are: Maginus (163 km), Heraclitus (90 km) with Licetus (75 km), and Moretus (114 km), which is in shadow but it has a distinguished edge.

Great Clavius ​​(225 km), is also in the dark being at the terminal, but beautifully laced eastern edge, is seen in the right in images. Images are upside down as seen through the telescope.

Video captures can be seen here: Maginus of the Moon in astronomical telescope image.
