Hevelius is a prominent 64-mile wide circular walled plain. It features a small central mountain and a rille - Rimae Hevelius - which is just about visible in this image. Its Northern steep slopes support neighbouring crater Cavalerius (below Hevelius in this image) which is much deeper with walls more than 9,000ft high.
