Eponym August Kundt

Kundt is a small, bowl-shaped lunar impact crater in the northern section of the Mare Nubium. It has a raised rim and is not significantly worn due to impact erosion. This crater lies part way between Guericke to the west and Davy in the east.

This crater was identified as Guericke C prior to being renamed by the IAU.
