Images with numerous craters on the Moon's south by astronomical telescope Maurolycus Barocius Stofler Heraclitus

In these images, we see the southern craters of the Moon, which are many in number and of all sizes. Most visible at the bottom of the image, are such as Stofler and Maurolycus, Heraclitus and Licetus, Lilius, Jacobi, Curtius, continuing to the edge of the Moon, on which craters are starting to become more oval and less noticeable in detail because of their position, as Hommel and Pitiscus, left.

Pictures are sharp and with fine details, considering they are captures of a video. The two large craters on the Moon, on the top in the pictures, are Mutus and Manzinus. On other evenings, the moon craters of the edge of lunar disk are not so far away, because the Moon has a periodic tilting forward and backward, and so are times when some of the craters are visible, and periods when they are no longer seen at all.

All regions of these pictures are wrapped by Tycho's rays. They are best seen here passing over Stofler and Maurolycus.

These video captures were chosen as the most clear, lacking as much as possible of aberration that gives Earth's atmosphere, which is often guilty of distortion of craters in images. Choosing the frames is quite difficult and much time involved in developing the film frame by frame. Conditions for choosing the best frame for the image to be catalogued the best, are, to be clear, free of atmosphere interference as much as possible, and the focus of the camera to be the best, which has times when is not focusing on desired region.
