Lunar craters filmed through a telescope: Wichmann and Flamsteed.

Oceanus Procellarum occupies a large part of eastern moon. In these images, see some craters on the basin, such as Wichmann and Flamsteed (21 km) both being situated north of the crater Letronne.

Wichmann (11 km) is a small crater, but one that draws attention more, is Wichmann R (62 km), which is completely flooded by lava, but less its northern edge, which is also interrupted in places, forming a semicircle.
