Mersenius is located west of Mare Humorum not far from the moon’s western limb. It is of average size but still rich in detail. The crater walls are broad and terraced; the floor has been flooded with lava and bulges markedly upwards in the middle.
My observation was done under excellent conditions with steady, transparent skies and favorable illumination. The terraces were prominent, especially on the western side (right i sketch). The convex shape of the floor was indicated by a soft shadow tracing the walls in the northern half of the crater. Two lighter rays were also clearly visible on the floor. (After checking up on the observation it seems that the northern and thinner ray, is a rille rather than a ray.) Several secondary craters were also seen, most notably Mersenius H on the southern part of the rim, and Mersenius L adjacent to the crater on the northern side.
