Lunar craters filmed through a telescope: J. Herschel.

Crater in the center image is J. Herschel (156 km), one of huge size, but with a very affected edge, which gives a more ugly look.

Located on the northern part of the Moon,  north of Mare Frigoris, this crater has a floor full of swamps, small craters and hills, in a word irregular, otherwise as his edge.

Over the edge of the southern rim, is a crater called Horrebow (24 km).

Northwest of J. Herschel, touched by the terminal, is a crater whose eastern edge projects its shadow on the floor, called Anaximander (68 km).
