At the time of Copernicus' formation, an enormous amount of material from the lunar soil, fragmented by the meteorite impact, was expelled outwards, forming the myriad of small craters that surround the crater itself. Note the impact radius. The slight saturation of the colors highlights the areas adjacent to the Copernicus crater which are darker and richer in titanium. The Eratosthenes crater and the Stadius ghost crater are also present in the image. On the bottom right, the Archimede crater with the small internal craters.

Very nice. FYI you can clean up the magenta fringing using SCNR, or Remove Green Noise. In Siril, you can use Negative Transformation to invert the image (so that the magenta becomes green) and then Remove Green Noise, and then use Negative Transformation again.

Thanks everyone for the likes and advice.
I attach an elaboration with a broader field that I appreciate more.

You can also see the small craters in Archimedes.
