Pictures of Moon through telescope crater Moretus.

In these images of the lunar south pole, north is down and south is up. Central in these images is the crater Moretus (114 km), which appears as a plate. Looking from above it seems perfectly round, but it's southern edge is wider. With this form, seems a more of a copy of the Drygalski crater (149 km), but which can not be seen from Earth because is at the south of the Moon side but not visible to us.
