Photos of the Moon through telescope. Crater Marco Polo in Registax.

What we see in these pictures, is a mountainous area on the center of the lunar disk, as we see it from Earth. Specifically, we observe the southern part of the Montes Apenninus, located between Sinus Aestuum at west and Mare Vaporum at east. Within these heights are quite numerousdistinct small craters, and some that are so destroyed that can barely be categorized as craters. For example, Marco Polo (28x21 km) is the crater located between peaks of Apeninnus mountains. This crater looks more like a small bay flooded with lava. Only the western edge survived; its east wall is almost nonexistent.

It can be located below, on the image description.

Throughout the mountains are small satellite craters strewn all over, like Marco Polo's. We distinguish Marco Polo A
(7 km), on the south of Marco Polo, and P (31 km), a flooded crater northeast of it.
