Hommel (125 km), is a large complex crater, with several structures that overlap it. This large crater is covered with secondary craters: Hommel A, B, C, D, H, and P.
North of Hommel is Pitiscus, and two prominent craters, Vlacq and Rosenberger at east.
Pitiscus (82 km), is a sharp-edged crater with a mountain of 12 km length centrally located in the eastern end of which is bowl-shaped deep crater Pitiscus A (9 km).
Vlacq (89km) is a large crater with a sharp edge to the east and the west wall is somewhat eroded. On its center is a proeminent mountain with a length of 19 km. Sunk into the floor, is a anonymous crater, 5 km, at the northern end of the mountain, and to the west is another crater, somewhat oval, of 11 km.
