Telescope Images processed in Registax: Zach Curtius Moretus craters.

38 video frames, in Registax.

In the image above we notice south of Moon craters near the edge of it, from Motetus and continuing to the north of it (image is upside down).

There are many craters here, but can be more easily recognized in the picture below, made in the same evening. If you want to know the craters of the Moon's south and where they are located, see these maps of south of the Moon (images are labeled with their names).

Craters seen here are Moretus, Gruemberger / Cysatus, Zach.
Moretus can not be seen with the naked eye. For this you will need at least some powerful binoculars or an astronomical telescope.

Video from which I have extracted the image, can be viewed in this article.
Video captures images are in this article.
Other images from the same evening are here.
