That camera is a similar spec/price to the QHY5LII-M I use.

I captured this last night using a Green Wratten #58 filter. I couldn't do a comparison as the above craters were not available. Still it demonstrates that use of a green filter is beneficial.

Oh, I didn't think about using a green filter for pictures of the Moon, I'll give it a try as your example does look gorgeous.

This is high res https://www.astrobin.com/jbmxjr/C/.

The best results I have had were with an IR685 filter https://www.astrobin.com/uj3ns8/B/
