Default Wow! Ultimate hi-resolution lunar image!

Click on link below to see outstanding Lunar definition;even so still some areas appear blurred but you can see some strange anomalies here and there.
The Finished Image

Hover over the image and use your mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and out. Click and drag to move around the Moon. Alternatively, use the zoom controls in the bottom right-hand corner of the image. There is also a full-screen button.
The image is displayed using Microsoft Deep Zoom and Seadragon technology, which loads the image in real-time as you zoom. On slower internet connections, it may take a few seconds after you zoom in for the full detail to be downloaded.


This image has been verified by Guinness World Records as setting a new record for the world's largest ground-based lunar image mosaic. It contains 288 separate high resolution panes, painstakingly stitched and matched together to form a seamless image. All the panes were shot during a single night to ensure that the Moon is at the same phase across the image, and despite difficult conditions on the night, the angular (detail) resolution is, as you can see by zooming in, incredibly high.

Yeah, definitely cool! It's like having your own high power telescope that you can move around to see what you want!

How is it that pics of the moon from the 1970's show a much clearer image of the moon, more craters and less smooth surface? I just found this pic, and would like some of the moon watchers comments:


I can't locate the whole moon shot that is so much clearer than what we see today, and it was from the 70's. I also want to know where our equipment is up there, and shouldn't we be able to see it today? Where are the plethora of pics from the back side of the moon? I can't believe we haven't taken great pics of it.

Any links would be appreciated.

Cool link,

I spent about 10 mins scanning around on high zoom and spotted at least 6-8 clear signs of structures. Found a square building with a huge tower as well towards the centre right.

Most of the easily found structures are in the centre of what appear to be crators

My might enjoy this one, Map-A-Planet: http://www.mapaplanet.org/explorer/moon.html -- you can select multiple bands.

But these are the newest, LROC: http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc_browse
