R1: Found the central peaks for all three craters. Nasireddin appears to have impacted on Miller and Huggins, and Huggins has impacted on Orontius. The much larger Orontius was located to their west and had craters on both its rim and floor.
R2:  Found Saussure a short distance from Orontius. Proctor was 2-3 times that distance from Saussure and was quite shallow.
