We see here also a mountain chain that starts from the crater to the north-west.
Another interesting crater with a pie shape, is Santbech (64 km). Between Wrottesley and Santbech, we see a higher region on which small satellite craters of Snellius (83 km), Biot (13 km) and Borda (44 km) are scattered.
Earth's atmosphere was not very favorable, so visibility was at an average level.
