         Albategnius crater, is 129 km in area and 4.4 km deep, it's best to watch on the first quarter. West walls are much more eroded than those in the east.

         On the floor is a triangular-shaped mountain, surrounded by several smaller craters.
 The floor has no other mountain formations but only small craters. A larger crater's inside Albategnius found on the northern side is Albategnius B (20 km), and an even larger crater of 44 km Klein (who was called before Albategnius A), near the west side of the floor.
