is a lunar crater
that is located on the Moon
's far side
, just to the southeast of the larger H. G. Wells crater
. About a crater diameter to the southwest of Tesla is Kidinnu crater
, and to the southeast is Van Maanen crater
This is a circular, bowl-shaped feature. There are a pair of small craterlets in the southern inner wall, but the crater is otherwise free of overlapping craters of significance. Only a few tiny impacts mark the floor and remaining sides.
By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Tesla crater.
