These images contain a larger area of the center region of the Moon. We observe the whole Sinus Aestuum plateau, crater Eratosthenes (58 km) at north, ghost crater Stadius (69 km) with its the row of satellite craters, and the southern part of Montes Apenninus with their southern extremity arched toward Eratosthenes crater.

Eratosthenes is beautifully lit here letting be seen the peaks on the center of its floor.
In some images, color shades and tones may be clearly identifiable on Mare Imbrium and Sinus Aestuum. These are materialized like white strips in contrast with the dark land of these basins.
