it was sure a race against time trying to fight off the clouds coming in from the west but i came out successful. i thought the weridest thing was when the picture came out the moon was a sunset red bu when i look at it, it was fine. im assuming that the camera picked up dust particles though the air as it captured. i had to mess with to make it black and white to make it more appealing but all the region was sharp and im please with this photo.

DSG:

You wnated to know what the craters are in your photo.  If I'm not mistaken the big crater (with the mountain in the middle) is Theophilus.  Here is some information about it:

Geological period: Eratosthenian (From -3.2 billions years to -1.1 billions years)

Size:
Dimension: 104x104Km / 61x61Mi
Height: 4400m / 13300ft
Height/Wide ratio: 0.044

Description:
Circular formation forming a remarkable trio with Cyrillus and Catharina.
Tormented and steep slopes overhanging Sinus Asperitatis from 1200m and supporting Cyrillus to the South-East Theophilus F to the
West and M├Ądler to the East.
Very high walls with terraces overlapped by Theophilus B to the North-West.
Flat floor. Imposing central mountain 1 400 m high with 4 summits. Line of crests hills and craterlets.

Observation:
Interest : Exceptional formation
Observation period: 5 days after New Moon or 4 days after Full Moon
Minimal Instrument: 10x binoculars

I copied that from the Virtual Moon Atlas.  Its free software that really helps with moon information.

Just outside of your picture at the bottom is the Sea of Tranquility. From the 3 craters if you move down you see the hook shaped mountains hooking southwest. Just southeast of that range is the landing spot of Apollo 11.
