Rupes Altai and Rothmann Zagut Sacrobosco craters.

There are many craters in these images can be highlighted: Rothmann (42 km) Lindenau (53 km), Zagut (84 km) and Sacrobosco (98 km), of which are just larger in size. All of them are located on the left of Rupes Altai which is the second outer collar surrounding Mare Nectaris basin.

Zagut crater is interesting because it contains another crater on the east floor named Zagut E (35 km) which alter the shape of Zagut. Near the center is found a small crater, Zagut A (11 km).
Sacrobosco with 3 craters on the floor A (17 km), B (14 km) and C (13 km) located in the triangle are also features that captivates your attention.
