The central mountain is small but conspicuous. A large unnamed enclosure extends N. of Segner: it is larger than Schiller, and is surrounded by a lofty barrier. The bright plain between this and the latter is worth examination under a low sun. ZUCHIUS. Is situated on the S.E. of Segner, which it slightly overlaps.
The principal ray-systems are those of Tycho, Copernicus, Kepler, Anaxagoras, Aristarchus, Olbers, Byrgius A, and Zuchius; while Autolycus, Aristillus, Proclus, Timocharis, Furnerius A, and Menelaus are grouped as constituting minor systems. Many additional centres exist, a list of which will be found in the appendix. The rays emanating from Tycho surpass in extent and interest any of the others.
It is very similar in size and general character, and has a lofty terraced wall, rising at one place on the W. to nearly 11,000 feet above the floor. A very fine chain of craters, well seen when the opposite border is on the morning terminator, runs round the outer W. slope of the wall. There is a bright crater beyond this on the S.W. Zuchius has a central peak.
