Kepler 38.00 W 8.10 N A terraced crater with central peaks, 31 km in diameter. It is also a center of prominent bright rays. A faint dome is barely visible in the northwest of Kepler.

Encke 36.60 W 4.60 N A slightly polygonal crater with uneven floor, 28 km in diameter. Its rim is interrupted by craterlet Encke N. During the full moon, Encke is overwhelmed by the bright rays from Kepler.

Maestlin R 41.50 W 3.50 N A disintegrated walled plain, 61 km in diameter. A chain of craterlets extends outward from the east wall of Maestlin R. A system of rilles (Rimae Maestlin, length 80 km) passes through the southeast wall.

The Maestlin Region appears as a low elevated plateau (megadome) that holds Maestlin R, Rimae Maestlin and a nameless chain of craterlets. It is located on the eastern edge of Oceanus Procellarum near Kepler, size about 100 km north-south.
