Beer and Madler in their famous work Der Mond (1837) mention a surface feature of the moon after As-Sufi (Azophi). It is a mountainous ring twenty-six miles in diameter in the ninth section of the lunar map. Al-Sufi's influence in astronomy was substantial. It is reported that the Buwayh Sultan, Sharaf-al-Dawlah, became interested in astronomy because of Al-Suphi's influence.
