Scheiner crater Telescope Images

In these pictures are captured two craters: Blancanus (105 km) and Scheiner (110 km), but a big part of Clavius ​​crater (225 km) too, located east of them. Scheiner crater is half shaded by the northeastern wall, and half of the southwest floor is fully illuminated by the sun.

  On the floor, notice a small crater, as a ring, on the border between light and darkness. This is called Scheiner A (12 km).

  On the southern edge, on the rim of the crater, there are two smaller craters, of which I have not found the names. A little farther away is Scheiner G (14 km) and on the western rim is located Scheiner C (13 km).

On the shaded area of the floor, are two craters about the same size of Scheiner A, one of which is called J (12 km).

  Scheiner, compared with Blancanus, has a generally rounded shape, but is more affected by the ulterior impacts.

Blancanus crater lies south-east of Scheiner. Note the central mountain which is on its floor, and the interior west walls in sunlight.
