Registax: Archimedes Autolycus and Aristillus through astronomical telescope.

Picture 1-3: 259 frames, 90% Lowest quality.

In these pictures of the Moon's surface, are craters located on the northern hemisphere. Craters are apparently close to each other.
Aristillus, unlike the Autolycus, that is smaller, below Aristillus, shows the center of some central peaks. An interesting feature of Aristillus, is the north-east wall, on which sis seen two channels, forked on the outside and down the crater to its floor, they are joined. Most likely, in this channel, lava once flowed.

On the floor of the crater Archimedes, it seems that someone has gone over it with a  broken bag of flour. The horizontal white stripes in the crater, can be only be ejection soil  that spread from onother crater  afterviolent impact.
Region between the three craters, is called Sinus Lunicus.

 Montes Spitzbergen is a high formation north of Archimedes, a distance of a crater, and they are solitary mountains located on Mare Imbrium.
