Maginus (163 km) is an ancient lunar impact crater located to the southeast of the crater Tycho. It's a large formation almost three quarters the diameter of Clavius, which is in the upper left in the photo. North of Maginus is Proctor crater (52 km), and to the south is Deluc (47 km). Maginus has a depth of 4.3 km.
In the photos above, Maginus crater floor is very visible. Maginus A at the left of the crater, has a diameter of 14 km.
The area captured in these images is much wider. We can delight our eyes with craters in the vicinity, such as Orontius (122 km), Heraclitus (90 km) and Licetus (75 km).
