Please help me identify the marked crater in the south. I think it is Zagut? Thanks!

have you tried Google Earth ?
Despite its name "Earth", it also has a mode to browse the Moon, Mars and the rest of the sky. You even can walk in a 3D surface ...

I did but there are no "mare" near that crater to relate to and all the craters look very similar in my poorly taken picture. Thanks for the response!

Sorry -- I was expecting better results from their maps :-((
Meanwhile I'm still more focusing on shooting rather than identifying the details of the moon -- this is so far my largest and I printed it as a 20x30"

Not a problem! Back to the maps and charts for me... 8-)

Could be Maurolycus? (looking at a chart in Norton's star Atlas!) Or maybe more likely Treisnecker as according to the map there are two craters just below it in the formation on the photo. Only a suggestion, but I hope it is of some help even if they're wrong! :) The chart I am looking at has 300 identifiable craters and of course it's a telescope view, south-north and reversed (Though I did realise this when looking for this crater LOL!)

master47 is correct with his first guess. That would be Maurolycus.
