There are not many features in this Moon area, but what captures our attention is Gambart crater (25 km), located on Mare Imbrium. Some of its satellite craters are visible in the images.

Gambart is a small lunar crater on Mare Insularum, near the central region of the Moon. It can be located south-southeast of the prominent crater Copernicus (93 km). In the past, its floor was flooded with lava, leaving a relatively flat area surrounded by a smooth outer edge but somewhat with a polygonal shape . To the southwest of Gambart, is a hilly area with deposits caused during Mare Imbrium's impact, known as Fra Mauro Formation.

Video of which I made the images, is here., where Gambart is observed from 52 second.
