Name that Moon in one

OK. Here's a challenge. The moon was lighting up the sky early this evening and temptingly sitting in view from the 'back gard' so I got the old telescope out to have a quick peek. The moon is in its 'first quarter'. When the moon has a shadow like it does now it seems to accentuate the features close to the shadow. And at this point in the moons phases a very large crater at the top stands out.

So the challenge is name that crater.

My pic is not that great ...again!. But it is clear enough.

Is there a real answer to this or is it a Blue Peter style competition? If it is the latter then I think we should pay tribute to the king of the crater himself and I name that crater The Great Pok of Ziege

I think there should be a real answer but I am without a map of Ziege's face.

That's easy, it's the "Eye of Jap".
