Rilles (JRF <freeman _at_ netcom.com>)
A major rille system extends from south of Hippalus north through Agatharchides.
Palus Epidemarium (David North <d _at_ timocharis.com>)
July 14, 1997: Palus Epidemarium was the usual happy hunting ground, and I can't say enough times how folks should make it a point to scope this area out when the light and seeing allow.

I stumbled across the exquisite Kies Pi, a dome with a nice little pucker in the middle sitting all by itself between Mercator and Kies. It's not a tough target, and is one of the more perfect domes to be seen at all.

Bullialdus (Randy Muller <71172.1234 _at_ compuserve.com>)
Bullialdus was a glorious example of a deep lunar crater, lit by the low sun. It was half lit, and had beautifully detailed terraced walls. Surrounding the crater walls was a 'shield' or what I thought of as a hood of raised, disturbed, debris-filled land. The shadow of the eastern wall cut halfway across the crater, and it made a very nice design.
