Enjoying the Moon. Registax Images of Maginus crater on the Moon by telescope.

125 video frames, in Registax.
1 video frames, in Registax.

These pictures are processings in Registax. Many of the images of the same area and the same evening, were posted in other articles but those were simple video captures. For these however, I needed more time for images resulted from Registax, where images are clear and covers a larger area of the lunar surface.

On the south pole of the Moon, are the most numerous craters, as we see it from Earth, and the crater Maginus (163 km) on these images, deserves its place among the other notable craters. It is large in size and the edge is affected by other impacts. Its neighbors are Clavius (225 km) at southwest, and Heraclitus (90 km) at east. These craters are oval because their position on the Moon so they are seen obliquely, but they are round like Moon craters located in the center.
