Montes Recti and Montes Teneriffe on the Moon. Images.

We see here in these pictures, two mountain formations of the northern Moon, Montes Recti and Montes Teneriffe, situated south of the crater Plato, which can also be seen here in all its splendor.

It is not placed here Mons Pico, a small mountain on eastern Montes Teneriffe.

From east to west, the mountains have been given names so for various reasons: Montes Recti are called so because of their shape in a straight line, Montes Teneriffe are called so after Tenerife islands and Mons Pico, probably was named by Schröter from Pico von Teneriffe (Teide).
