In the middle of Montes Apenninus see a somewhat unknown crater Conon (22 km in diameter) that is located at Mons Bradley. Inside this crater you see a small crater of around 700 meters.

To the left of the photo you can see Sinus Fidei in it Rima Conon (45 km long) with very small shivering. On the left you see in the Greek letter P = Pi p, this seems to me a lunation subsidence.

Furthermore we see one of the most famous rill Rima Hadley partly because Apollo 15 has done his landing there. There are dozens of small to very small craters in the Crater Archimedes.
