Registax images of Grimaldi and Hevelius craters on the Moon.

I have published images of the same area of the Moon from the same evening in other articles such as here, but those have not been processed in Registax.

Region which is about here is the West, where we see a large crater named Grimaldi (430 km). This is known as a basin rather than a crater, and is located on western Oceanus Procellarum, and in these images we see a fairly large part of it.

This small basin is known for transient lunar phenomena (or TLP), which involves occasional flashes of light, color patches and areas of vague vision. In this area have been detected also gas emissions using spectroscopy.

 Craters that are visible here: Grimaldi (430 km), Hevelius (106 km), Lohrmann (31 km), Damoiseau (37 km) and Hermann (16 km).

Video from which were extracted these images are here.
Simple video captures (snapshots) are here.

Craters were filmed with a video camera attached to an astronomical 203 mm Newtonian telescope.

In the picture below are labeled craters and other lunar features in the region. To better understand this photo, you should note that the label with the name or the letter of larger craters could be found at their center, and on the small craters, you should find them around them, usually above.
