Wonderful Petavius ​​crater astronomical images through the telescope

Petavius ​​is the most beautiful crater on the south-east of the MoonIt has several interesting features: a wide margin, several central peaks and unusual rills.  These are the best images of the crater I made.

Petavius​​, is a noble complex crater, which extends nearly 100 miles from N. to S.with a very robust floor, crossed by many deep valleys, which includes a massive central mountain and one of the most remarkable cracks on the surface of the Moon visible from Earth.
