Montes Alpes Cassini

South of the Montes Alpes notice Cassini crater and two small craters located within it, designated A and B and in the first photo, Vallis Alpes. Also note southeast Cassini, the crater Theaetetus.

Cassini has an expanded outer edge. West of the crater, the Montes Caucasus, a mountain range of 550 km length, is marking the boundary between Mare Serenitatis and Mare Imbrium.
