Schiller crater through astronomical telescope. Processing in Registax.

Our Moon is full of craters of all shapes and sizes. One of the craters with a more unusual shape, is Schiller. This "worm" on the west of the Moon, has a length of 179 km and a width of 71 km. It is positioned so that if follows the contour of the lunar disk frpm our perspective.

In these images we see an extra wall located along the eastern edge of Schiller (in images on west because the images are upsidedown).

The area has a milky appearance due to sunlight that makes it seem so. Frankly, that kind of illumination I really like because of various white intensities of the craters. It seems that the saying that the Moon is made of cheese it even makes sense here.

Craters neighboring Schiller are: to the south-southeast is Rost (48 km) and Rost A (39 km) west near the terminal is Schiller C (an incomplete crater) to the east sticking to Schiller, is Bayer (47 km), and north is Nöggerath (31 km) and Nöggerath G (21 km).

In the picture below are labeled craters and other lunar features in the region. To better understand this photo, you should note that the label with the name or the letter of larger craters could be found at their center, and on the small craters, you should find them around them, usually above.
