Tycho is without question the most interesting southern crater on the Moon. It is small but from it starts rays hundreds of kilometers around it.

Tycho (43ºS 11ºW) has a diameter of 86 km. It is a complex crater with a terraced interior wall and central peaks. This recent crater has a bright ray model, extending for hundreds of kilometers. Extensive impact secondary fields , are visible on the surrounding terrain.

Here, Tycho is half in the dark, shadow that bypasses the central peak on the floor, being left in the light.

The images captures a much larger area around Tycho, craters that are more in number which is a feature of the South. We can observe Orontius (122 km), Sasserides (90 km), Saussure (54 km), Maginus (163 km), Heraclitus and Licetus (90/75 km), Cuvier (75 km) and the list continues.
Since the telescope moved on a wider area, Registax program has taken all the frames and created a wonderful picture of the area.

You can watch the video from which I've extracted the images and simple video captures, in other articles.
