Langrenus is a beautiful sight by telescope. It is a very prominent crater, 132 km-wide) with terraced walls, hills, and central peaks. In the telescopic image above it is the most prominent, and somewhat bright, crater. The Lunar Orbiter image at right  is still oblique (unlike most LO shots which are mostly overhead) and shows Langrenus at bottom. The huge walled plain at the top is Mare Crisium which means Lunar Orbiter was on the eastern limb at the time.
