Craters on the Moon in the pictures. Pitatus and Hesiodus.

You see some great craters in some beautiful images, taken with an astronomical telescope.
On the center's Pitatus (97 km) is a high peak, its shadow being projected on the smooth floor.
Hesiodus (43 km) crater is attached to the west side. (in images, east, because images are upside down).
A very "wrinkled" crater is observed in the top-right image, and it is called Wurzelbauer (88 km). Close to it is Gauricus (79 km).
