Images by telescope in Registax North Gartner and Democritus lunar craters

84 frames to 90% best quality in Registax

The "calm" image of the region, is a basin called Mare Frigoris, a long strip, smooth, horizontal on Moon's North. It could be called the moon's forehead  inmy opinion.

Being close to the Mare Frigoris to its north, Gartner crater was flooded to the south, leaving the impression of a small sinus. On Gartner's northwest, we find a distinct, deep crater, because it was not flooded by lava, with sharp edgeswhich in these illumination circumstances it has a shaded floor and the rim of the crater is more evidentThis is crater called Democritus.

Note Galle crater, the last of several craters "out of land" on the Mare Frigoris.
