South pole of the Moon is beautifully materialized in these images at this phase. In this article we focus on two craters almost identical in size, and also neighbours, south-west of the great crater Clavius (225 km), Blancanus and Scheiner ​​.
Blancanus (105 km), unlike Scheiner (110 km), has contoured edges, less affected by other impacts, and on the center of the floor, there are some central peaks. Scheiner is "ugly", having the edge more "wrinkled", and on the floor we can distinguish several small craters, but larger than those on the floor of Blancanus.
Looking farther on horizon, at the edge of the Moon, notice Klaproth (119 km) and Casatus (111 km) craters.
