Bob,
That's indeed a magnificent overview of the so-called "Andreus hills" (left) and "the Lobster" (right) near the walled plain Gassendi and near H.P.Wilkins's "Clarkson" (Gassendi A).
As mentioned below one of your other photos of this region, I would like to know something about the origin of the name "Andreus hills" (printed on the large greenish Rand Mc.Nally moonmap).

Danny Caes,
