The South-east Quadrant Home

This is the south-east area of the Moon, south of latitude 34° south and east of the prime meridian.  It was taken almost two days after Full Moon, so the edge is the terminator, not the limb.  A picture that extends this one into the libration zone (albeit at a larger scale) can be found on my picture of the SE Libration Zone.  The libration was favourable for this area at -5° 21' in Latitude and +2° 50' in Longitude.

The picture is a mosaic of three pictures.  Move your mouse over the picture to see the names of some of the craters.  The scale markers are approximately 100 Km north and west and apply at Pitiscus.
