Astronomy lecture-Photos by telescope.Crater Metius

Rheita and Metius craters through the telescope.
 Metius crater, 88 km across, I forgot to describe it.
Metius is an impact crater located in rugged mountainous areas southeast of the Moon. The rim of the southwest is close to Fabricius. To the northwest is the crater Brenner. Proceeding to the northeast is Rheita and the long valley, Vallis Rheita.

The floor is relatively flat, with small central peaks. Most prominent crater on the floor is Metius B, 14 km, located near the northeastern edge.
This crater is the eponymous of dutch geometer and astronomer Adriaan Adriaanszoon, which was known as Metius.
