West of Tycho craters through telescope. Heinsius and Wurzelbauer

This area is very close to the terminal and craters are more difficult to recognize. However, we can see that we are close to the southern area of the Moon, where craters are more numerous. Here we observe craters like Wurzelbauer (88 km) and Gauricus (79 km), two closer craters and similar in size, south of Pitatus (97 km), but with different floor characteristics and their edges.

Wurzelbauer has a floor full of swamps and hills, low margins, with a depth of 2.2 kilometers, compared to Gauricus which has a depth of 2.7 km, with a smoother floor strewn with small craters on it and the interior edge.
Wurzelbauer's south, are observed only Heinsius crater (64 km) and its satellite craters. These images may be located at the top, because it is upside-down as viewed through a telescope. Heinsius is flooded crater by darkness.
