Hommel and pitiscus from Moon's South. Photos by telescope.

Hommel (125 km), is located at the south of the Moon. It has some interesting features, because its shape is slightly irregular, with fairly large craters located on each side of it, these being Hommel A, C and D. In the north of this crater is Pitiscus (82 km), but this one it is a well defined crater, with unaffected edges by other subsequent impacts, and have a centrally located mountain.
  At that time, the Moon was 18 days, and looked like the picture below.
