Lunar Images - Apollo 11 Landing Site

Blogged by Xiao Sun on August 25, 2009 and tagged with Sample Images, Moon.

French astro photographer Laurent Langelez sent us two lunar images in July. He took an image of Mare Tranquillitatis, the landing site of Apollo 11 mission, and made comparison with NASA's announcement in the next.

We translated his e-mail from French as follow:

I took an image of Apollo 11′s landing site on 02.03.09.

Newton 254 mm, Bbarlowx2, DMK 31AU03.AS, processing software Registax.

The 2nd image is an assembled comparison with NASA's image. I did it together with Mr. Robert R. CAZILHAC.
