Close to the northern cusp, the class 1 walled plain Pythagoras is a prominent feature, showing fair contrast between shadow and highlight.
At the opposite end of the crescent, about 1/6 of the way up from the southern cusp, another walled plain - the large class 5 Schickard - is now just a smooth hollow on the terminator. Between Schickard and the limb lies the highly foreshortened class 2 Inghirami. Midway between here and the southern cusp, another class 5 walled plain, Bailly, occupies almost the full width of the Moon's crescent. It is the largest crater on the entire nearside.
With favourable libration, a series of slight bumps may be seen on the limb between the midpoint and about 1/4 of the way up from the southern cusp. These are the Cordillera Mountains - the outer ring wall of the farside Mare Orientale, which itself may be glimpsed with exceptional libration.
