Stunning view as always, jccwrt! But please note that the volcano visible is Ascraeus Mons.

Somewhere in the northern hemisphere in November 1978. Metadata isn't helpful in figuring out exactly where. I have a hunch that the large crater in the lower left corner is Lomonosov, but there are so few surface features visible that I can't confirm.

Your hunch is correct. Lomonosov is the largest crater. Kunowsky is the other one at upper right (due south of Lomonosov). Very faintly visible to clinch the identification are a crater at lower left (due north of Lomonosov) and a cluster of small features just south of Kunowsky.
