To be short, in the images are craters located on the south of the Moon as we see from Earth, near its edge (the terminal).

The crater Moretus (114 km) is emphasized here and its neighboring craters.
Moretus 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).

Moretus is easily observed through the telescope sometimes, but other times its difficult. This is due to libration of the Moon which is found sometimes inclined forward and sometimes on the back. The best time to observe the crater Moretus, is when the Moon is bent back, so the lunar south is facing us.
Simple video captures, are here.
You can view video of which I took these pictures, here.
