The image of this article is upside down, as seen through the telescope. Craters Agrippa and GodinTriesnecker and SinusMedii are the subject to the above image.

 These craters are located on the center of the Moon, and being far the terminator (the edge of the Moon), are observed on Earth undistorted. Craters from the edge are elongated, oval in shape, but only because of their position away from the center, because the Moon is spherical.
