Craters Barocius Maurolycus, Stofler, Licetus. Besides these large craters, are: Faraday (70 km), Buch (54 km) and Büsching (52 km).

Faraday (70 km), is a Moon crater located in the southern highlands of the Moon. It lies on the southeast edge of the crater Stöfler and west is Maurolycus.Yhe rim of Faraday was significantly overlapped by subsequent impacts, especially through a pair superimposed on the south-west and north-west. There is a centrally located low ridge to the south-west to north-east, dividing the crater floor in half. The floor is almost flat in the north-west.
The name comes from Michael Faraday (22/9/1791-25/8/1867) who was an English chemist and physicist (or natural philosopher, in the terminology of the time), which contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry.

Buch (52 km), is an old and worn crater. It lies northeast of the crater Maurolycus and Büsching, similar size, is attached to the northern edge . The rim has been eroded by many smaller impacts, so the edge is rounded. The crater floor is relatively flat with no features, with no central peak in the middle. There are only a small crater near the north-west side.
Crater is the name given by Christian Leopold Freiherr von Buch (26.4.1774-4.03.1853) who was a German geologist and paleontologist.

Büsching (52 km), has been eroded over a long period of subsequent impacts, so that the edge was brought down and rounded. Several small craters are located along the edgeThe interior is without a central peak in the middle.
The name comes from the crater Büsching Anton Friedrich (1724-1793) who was a German theologian and geographer.
