Moretus and Clavius in high resolution and colors

Scroll down to content

The following view is one that I’ve posted already on this blog (here), but this time some new information was added to the result. The “new” release is a 150% version from original, processed a bit different to the older versions, and with some color data added from a color Moon mosaic. It did take a while to get this result, and it’s still far from what I had in mind, but it does show the two main colors of this area, with most of the bluish-white material coming from the nearby “younger” crater Tycho (which is not visible in this mosaic). Note the blue material on the floor of Clavius which goes further towards the South; this is part of one of Tychos’s rays (as it can be seen in this mosaic).
