R1: Lexell has a central peak and a very eroded northern edge. Hell is very deep and has a well-defined rim. Deslandres appears to have been impacted several times on its rim and its floor, giving it the irregular shape.

C1: A line of 5 or 6 very small craters were in a  line from the SE to the NW within the crater. Couldn't see the central peak of Hell.
