Very High Resolution Lunar Photo

Blogged by Jonathan Maron on July 17, 2007 and tagged with Sample Images, Moon.

I was just looking at my e-mail archive and found this extremely high resolution image of the Moon. It was sent to us by Jean-Luc Dauvergne back in June 2006. Jean-Luc works for the French magazine Ciel et Espace (magazine de sciences de l'AFA, Association française d'Astronomie). Click the photo for the original (2.1 MB).

I think this must be the highest resolution photo that we have received so far. If you can top it, please send me your astronomy photo and I will publish it here. Of course, the photo must have been captured, using one of The Imaging Source cameras.

Thanks goes to Jean-Luc Dauvergne for this spectacular image.
