First of all, let me introduce you craters in this area: Cepheus, Franklin and Geminus (86 km). All are located on the northeast of the Moon, southeast of Hercules and Atlas.
About Geminus , we find him here in the shade, with the appearance of a "black hole", on which we distinguish only the outer edge. Franklin (56 km) on the other hand, we observe the peak of the center and the top edges of the flooded crater, Franklin F (38 km).
Cepheus (40 km), a smaller crater than those mentioned above, has a small satellite crater located on the eastern edge, Cepheus A (13 km).
Video of these images can be viewed here.
