Sasserides (90 km) is located north of the crater Tycho (85 km).
Images are upside down, as seen through the telescope and the cardinal points described in the article do not take account of this.
On the edge and around the crater Sasserides are a cocktail of smaller satellite craters of Orontius (122 km) and Ball (41 km).
Moon Phase made these craters to be well viewed and defined, very clear images.
Sasserides crater name is given from Gellio Sasceride (Sasserides) (1562-1612), who was a Danish astronomer and doctor. He worked as an assistant to Tycho Brahe. Maybe that's why Tycho crater is nearby.
