        Deslandres (256 km) is a lunar crater affected and distorted. It is located southeast of Mare Nubium on the rugged southern highlands of the Moon. It is the second largest crater on the visible Moon from Earth after crater Bailly (303 km). It is marked by cracks with numerous craters. There is a small area of basalt lava material along the eastern interior floor.
Walther crater is attached to the east, and Ball, on south vest.
The remnant crater Lexell is on south-east edge, forming a "port". Regiomontanus crater is attached to the irregular edge northeast of Deslandres.Crater Hell lies entirely within the crater to the west.
