Moretus (114 km) crater at the lunar south, (the largest in the center), is seen here more oblique than usual due to the Moon's position (bent forward). At the bottom of it, in images (north of) are two craters bonded together: Cysatus and Gruemberger (94/49 km).
The central peak located on the floor of Moretus, is beautifully depicted here, its shadow being projected to the edge.
The crests we see rising at the Moon's terminator, are not mountains but edges of craters, including Short's rim (70 km).
Other images from that evening, are here.
