Astronomy Images by telescope. Craters of the Moon: Schickard.

In these images processed in Registax light gives a nice look on west craters of the Moon, as Schickard (227 km) Phocylides and Nasmith (114/77 km). On Schickard's floor are shades of color more noticeable which gives us to understand that it was flooded in several lava stages of different composition.

Inghirami crater is totally overwhelmed by darkness, located on the Moon west of Schickard. At this stage we only see its sunlit exterior collar.

The images are the result of processing in Registax 5 from a video made with a video camera attached to the telescope.
