Astroinfo: Craters by astronomical telescope: Gruemberger and Cysatus.

What we look at in these images, is the South of the Moon. Although it seems that we look at the top of the Moon, in fact the pictures are upside down for better observation of the area.

Gruemberger and Cysatus (94/49 km) are two craters located between Clavius (225 km) ​​and Moretus (114 km), but closer to Moretus.

Gruemberger is larger in size with destroyed edges compared to Cysatus, which has sharp edges. Cysatus at this phase has a dark floor. It overlaps slightly on the eastern edge of Gruemberger.
Even if seen very obliquely because the Moon's position, on the floor of Gruemberger crater is observed a smaller one, called Gruemberger A (20 km).
