Extreme south of the Moon Pictures by astronomical telescope

South of the Moon. This area was hard to describe in finding names of the craters. It is a very craterous area, with multiple impacts of all sizes, and is easy to "get lost".
South of Blancanus are two united craters: Klaproth (119 km) and Casatus (111 km).
Klaproth's smooth floor surrounded by a small wall that is shared with Casatus on south.
The rest of Casatus's edge is larger and more defined than that of Klaproth, and its floor has a small bowl-shaped crater, Casatus C (15 km) north of the center.
