Default Lunar landscape in high resolution

If you like observing the Moon you will enjoy the LROC (lunar reconnaissance orbiting camera) site. It provides images down 0.5 meters/pixel. Here are five examples of the many zoom levels available. the address for the site is: target.lroc.asu.edu/q3. Wait until FULLY downloaded before continuing. These images were photographed off my monitor: Note the magnification box at extreme lower left.

My previous link was in error. To gain access to the site use: lroc.sese.asu.edu/images/.
From there , just click on "quickmap". The initial page has some great images when you scroll down, and include some 3D images that require some cheap cardboard red/blue glasses that are free at the movies. Real lunatics will love this site.
