  • Do the best you can, while you can
I am wondering where we are drawing the line with regards to selecting very ancient craters. I see amongst the more obvious craters some very old geological features that are not well defined but are obviously very old. I must stress that I mean the realy old ones. Now, one has to be careful in making the choice against mounds but, with practice, the isn't a problem.

I did have an example but never saved it to favoutites, I'll look for another.

I have seen a few of them while classifying, we can see the difference because they look deteriorated while the new ones look fresh and crisp.
OMG I sound like I'm talking about lettuce!  :o ;D ;D ;D

I'm hoping that this will be covered in the updated "How to use" area of the site.

I think it will.
