Location of the Lunar field imaged by NACO

Where is the NACO field at the Taruntius crater located on the Moon ? A 400 x 400 square km area surrounding this crater is shown in the right panel; it has been reproduced from a photo mosaique with 500-metre resolution based on exposures made in 1994 by NASA's "Clementine" spacecraft in lunar orbit. Taruntius, Cameron and other craters in this area are identified in the diagram at the lower left. The area covered by the Clementine photo is outlined on a photo of the entire Moon (upper left), obtained at nearly the same phase as when the NACO image was made
