Schiller crater on the west of the Moon.

In this article we turn again to the elongated Schiller crater (180 km) west of the moon. Astronomical telescope was pointed at the area with the camera attached to the eyepiece and from the video I took of the best frames with most important details.

Although Schiller seems to be drawn in these images, it has a length of 179 km and a width of 71 km with a depth of 3.9 km. You can estimate how long is this distance if we report say 2 places on earth, and I give as an example the distance between Baia-Mare city and Turda, which is 176 km.
