Note here an area where I had always loved to turn my telescope, namely Southern Moon, where are numerous craters of all shapes. Moretus (114 km) is the most beautiful of them, but I have will not talk about it here. There are plenty of other articles in which is described in details.
As a new observation for me, are the two craters northwest of Moretus, called Gruemberger (94 km) and Cysatus (49 km), because I have never seen it with this look, like at this phase.
Although Gruemberger is eroded, with very worn edges, at this phase looks to be more "ordered" than it actually is.
I'm pretty sure that you guys like what you see in these pictures. I can not take my eyes off that high peaks in sunlight at the edge of the Moon. The heights are not mountains, but the edges of craters which lies between the seen and unseen side of the Moon.
Other craters seen here are Curtius (95 km), Zach (71 km), Pentland (56 km), Sempilius (70 km), and Short (71 km).
