West region of the Moon. Registax images.

We talked about this area and other articles such as those in the links below, where we examined the southwest region of the Moon. The difference here is that picture quality is even better since these are Registax processings.

The images are overturned, so therefore cardinal points are reversed, but that's for a more relaxing view of these craters of various sizes. Among them we mention craters like Schickard (227 km) Hainzel (70 km), Noggerath (31 km), Drebbel (30 km), Phocylides and Nasmith (114/77 km) Wargentin (84 km) and Inghirami (91 km). Other features are Palus Epidemiarum, and Lacus Timoris and Lacus Excellentiae.

The video from which I extracted the images are here.
Video captures (snapshots) are here.

Images were obtained by attaching a camera directly into the eyepiece of an astronomical telescope of 8 inch Newtonian; For this reason the eyepiece visual field was increased.

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.
