Telescope images of the northern lunar crater Meton

Barrow (93 km), is bordering Goldschmidt at the east side of the wall. Barrow, which in these pictures is full of darkness, enters on the south-west of the crater Meton (122 km), which is a flat crater with a well-defined edge, and laced with a number of large bays: Meton C and D. further east is Neison, a circular crater (53 km), with the floor flat and dark, and northeast of Meton is Baillaud.

In these images are other distinguishable craters as: Arnold, Kane, C. Mayer, and the northernmost being Petermann.
