     Triesnecker (26km.)-at the center of the image, is a lunar crater that is located on Sinus Medii, near the central part of the Moon. It is located north-northwest of crater Rhaeticus -is not in the photo,and east-south-east of Murchison-left , in the shadow of Triesnecker.
      Other craters that can be seen in this photo snapshot: Agrippa and Godin (45 and 35 km.)-both one under another in the bottom- right (photo), Rima Hyginus are cracks in the photo above, and in their midst,is a small crater called Hyginus (11 km.).
        Hyginus (11 km),is a small crater located at the east end of the Sinus Medii. Its rim is split by a long, rille that branches to the northwest and to the east-southeast for a length of 220 kilometers. The crater is deeper than the rille, and lies at the bend where they intersect. Together the crater Hyginus and Rima Hyginus form a distinctive and prominent feature in an otherwise flat surface.
