Astronomical pictures Pitiscus crater on the Moon.

Pitiscus (82 km), with a depth of 3 km, is a sharp-edged crater with a mountain of 12 km in length centrally located, on whose eastern end is a bowl-shaped deep crater, named Pitiscus A (10km) .
In these images, the crater is almost completely submerged by darkness. Just inside the west wall is visible, where you can see a smaller crater, Pitiscus E, which is 13 km in diameter.
