Three magnificent craters all in one view. Longomontanus shows a flat crater floor and impressive crater walls, with many terrasses and slopes.

Clavius hardly needs introduction. it's trademark feature is the arc of craters ending in the crater Rutherfurd on the Southern borders of Clavius.

Moretus has fine terrases and a nice, sharp central peak.

All were possible to image this well tanks to good seeing conditions and a almost ideal libration.
