R1: Wohler has no central peak; its SW wall is wider and steeper than the NE wall. Not as deep as Stiborius. Stiborius has a central peak and appears to be in a relatively flat area (of another crater?). The SW wall is particularly steep, and wide walls in the SW. Stiborius C much shallower and smaller.
C1: Nicolai looked circular with 2 craters on its north wall and had a flat floor. Nicolai A also noted. Spallanzani looked to have a small crater on its west wall and was much smaller than Nicolai. Because Spallanzani was close to the terminator, I couldn't see its floor or interior rim details.
C2: Numerous craters were seen in this area - craters upon craters.
