Astrophotography. Taruntius crater on the Moon.

Taruntius (56 km) is located southwest of Mare Crisium basin and the northern Mare Fecunditatis. It is a crater that can not be seen with ordinary binoculars, but through an astronomical telescope.

On the northwestern edge of it, we distinguish a small crater named Cameron (11 km).

Taruntius is surrounded by a pile of debris excavated from the impact. In the center are two peaks attached together.
