Damian says that this high resolution image of Langrenus is undoubtedly his best result on it.  Interestingly it was also the very first sequence taken on his overseas trip earlier this year (imaging Jupiter) so he'd flown 4,000 miles and got everything operational at the other end.
This ~82 mile crater has been the location of some interesting TLP observations in the past such as by Dollfus in 1992/93 who suggested gas being released from the crater floor could be a cause of changing patches of light he observed within the crater.
