Registax: Alexander Crater and Montes Caucasus Images through the telescope.

Figure 1-4: 139 frames, 90% Lowest quality
Figure 5: 2 frames, 100% Lowest quality

This photo shows Caucasus Mountains and nearby features. The first four are a single image, but with different processing on contrasts and sharp.

Crater I never about before, is Alexander (81 km), which actually has a shape similar to a crater, located north of Mare Serenitatis. It lies southwest of the crater Eudoxus, and north-east of Calippus.

Alexander was so badly damaged and distorted by other impacts over time, that now looks more like a region of plains, hilly land with bounded intervalsRim segments are along the north-west, west, south, while the east is open. The walls that have survived, are almost rectangular in shape with the major mountain peaks to the northwest.
Crater floor has a darker albedo in the west, and gradually grows brighter to the east.
