Triesnecker (26 km), is a small crater, round in appearance, except the western wall, which is out a bit. The crater floor is not smooth, because it was not flooded by lava. This makes the entire floor to be mountainous, with more blunt peaks on it's center. The crater is located on the center of the Moon, on a plateau called the Sinus Medii. On iy'right, there are more rimae that run from north to south. One of them is called Rima Triesnecker.
