We focus on the center of the Moon, where we see several interesting features.
At the top of the images is a part of Sinus Aestuum. Below, we see small satellite craters like Schroter (35 km), Sommering (28 km), Gambart (25 km) and Bode (19 km). At the bottom the images are bonded Pallas and Murchison craters (50/58 km)..
As an interesting feature is a darker region in the center of the images.

The two craters Sommering and Schroter, are both affected by the floods of lava. These have edges with interruptions.

Images were made in Registax program, in which I've inserted a video to be processed.
