Catharina is a very battered crater with its walls pot-marked with smaller craters. The picture here was taken
shortly before sunset on that part of the Moon, so the steep walls cast dark shadows and the full structure of the crater
does not show up well.
The picture was taken with a ToUcam attached to my LX200 with a X2 adaptor lens on 16th September 2003 at 0326 UT, when the Moon was 19.7 days old.
