      Craters aligned to the top of the photo from left to right: Rheita E ( elongated), Rheita (70 km.) Metius (88 km.) and Fabricius (78 km.)
       Rheita E, the left and elongated in the picture, has a shape similar to another crater in my opinion ,is about Schiller crater, but Rheita is like in miniature.      Rheita -the next one,is an impact crater located in the south-west of the Moon. . Eastern edge overlaps with Rheita Vallis, a valley stretching over 200 kilometers.

Below is the east surface of the Moon to help localize the craters.
