Lunar features for common telescopes: Mersenius lunar crater.

In northwestern Mare Humorum basin, there is a flooded crarer with scalloped edge called Mersenius (84 km). At this phase, we can notice more of the smooth floor, but not devoid of features and smaller crater on its walls called Mersenius H (15 km). At its south-west we see a crater which in turn has a satellite crater on its edge. This is the satellite crater Cavendish (56 km) and Cavendish E (24 km), and F (18 km).

Going in a straight line to the north-west, there are two craters: Henry (41 km) and Henry Freres (42 km), the latter being filled with shadow.

Many of the craters here were presented in other articles where I presented images of the same evening, but processed in Registax 5. In this article are only video captures.
