A fascinating and complex crater with the crater wall on the lower left poorly defined from subsequent impact events I presume; not a crater I've ever looked at before but one I will put on my list. Thank you. Have you tried the 807nm ProPlanet filter Bill?

Hi, James! The problem with the 807nm filter is that it impacts adversely on resolution and makes the image very noisy. This is true also of the 742nm, but to a much lesser degree.
