Walther crater on the Moon.

This is the crater Walther, filmed on March 10, 2014 through an astronomical telescope with a video camera attached. The image is upside down as seen through the telescope.

Walther is a messy crater, like many others situated to the south of the Moon. This crater has a relatively large depth of 4100 meters.

The name is given from Walther Bernhard (June 19th 1430 - 1504) who was a German humanist and astronomer from Nuremberg. He, together with Regiomontanus (which also has a crater on the moon with his name) built an observatory.
