New presentation of crater Capuanus by Newtonian telescope.

51 frames at 85% best quality in Registax.

Capuanus (60 km), is a flooded crater integrated into Palus Epidemiarum at the southeastern Mare Humorum Basin . It can be recognized by a special feature , namely after the 3 " claws " that start from the northwestern edge of it.

On Palus Epidemiarum also, is crater Ramsden (25 km) , around which are some grooves called Rima Ramsden .
Images are inverted as seen through the telescope.

A crater that seems more special , although small, is Marth (6 km), located on the plateau Epidemiarum . It has the appearance of a crater in the crater because it has two sets of edges , the two rings placed one on another like a bull's eye . Maybe just for these interesting features of this crater was given a name without being regarded as a satellite of another crater , like most small craters on the Moon .
Even if this crater has a diameter of 6 km, Marth has even a satellite crater of 3 km, named Marth K.

East of Palus Epidemiarum, is the eroded crater, Cichus (41 km) .
Other craters seen in the image are the satellite craters of those mentioned above, and also Heinsius (64 km) and Wilhelm (107 km).
