The magnificent Lunar monarch Copernicus is a great sight. In this image the lighting was excellent to display not only a lot of detail in the crater walls, but also on the crater floor a lot of debris is visible. Surrounding Copernicus there is a huge amount of satellite impacts. we can also see the flooded crater Stadius North-East of Copernicus. The contrast in the image was adjusted so to better show the debris carpet created by the Copernicus impact.
