Lunar crater Triesnecker photographed from Earth.

100 video frames in Registax.

The area we are discussing in this article, is the center of the Moon, where the craters we see craters with their interior much better than those seen on the edge of the Moon, where they are seen obliquely. But still, each position of craters on lunar disc has its advantages and disadvantages. At the craters located on the terminal of the Moon can be seen more easily the inner edge, and central peaks on the floor and we can even estimate their height. At the craters located on the center of the Moon, this is not possible because they are viewed from above, and not obliquely.

Triesnecker (26 km), is a prominent impact crater located on Sinus Medii near the center of the Moon. It is located to the north west of Rhaeticus (43x49 km) and south east of the flooded crater Murchison (58 km). To the east of the crater, is a system of rilles extending over an area of 200 kilometers to the north and south.
