Schickard by astronomical telescope. Astronomy images.

This is the crater Schickard (227 km), the largest of the images, located on the west of the moon. This crater is like a small basin flooded by lava. Over its surface we see many shades, dark and light. White hue is seen especially in the center of the crater.
The moon was lit more than 96%, so only a little of its disc was left in the shadows as we see here.

Registax images are here.

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.
