Lunar images through the telescope Proclus and Macrobius craters

The images through the telescope in this article, are craters located to the east of the Moon. In the first picture is seen almost entirely, Palus Somni, wich is the open stretch of land that is located west of Mare Crisium. Over Palus Somni, is visible in this photo a stripe whiter than the surrounding land, and is actually the ejection that remained after the impact that formed the crater Proclus.
Other craters in these pictures are: Macrobius, Carmichael, Hill and Lyell.
