Alfraganus (13 miles) is a small crater located in a highlands region. It is deep, over 2 miles and stands out easily, even in this rugged region. You should have no trouble finding it 5 days after new Moon. I find no detail on its small floor.

Kant (19 miles) is a prominent crater about 1½ miles deep. There is a low central peak and the walls are terraced.

Taylor (25 × 21 miles) is an oval shaped crater. The terraced walls rise to almost 1½ miles above the floor. There is an easily seen central peak.
