Astronomical telescope Images Posidonius crater in shadow.

This is Posudonius crater, and some of these images have been discussed in the article: Posidonius crater optical illusion Pictures through the telescope .

Posidonius crater on the Moon, here is caught in a dim light. In these pictures we can estimate the height of the crater walls by the light of the interior side of them. This crater is reaching its depth of 2.5 km and 95 km diameter.
Little bright ring at the center, is Posidonius A.
 I also presented photographs of the crater made on another day, but it was filmed with another camera (Sony CX105), in which it was more illuminated by the Sun, as viewed in the photo below.
