nice photo. not sure i like the hyper saturation as it takes away from its natural color, but a cool pic non-the-less.
check out on the 7:00 position how one of the asteroid hits blew dust nearly half way across the lunar surface. good stuff.
thanks for the post.

I am sure he is lying or used alot of post processing on the pic, I took this picture with my Canon D10, I also have the same camera as his pic was taken with which is the Canon D20 and both of them produced the same results. I have used a 400mm lens on a tripod. My pic is unaltered, you decide.

I have a question for you astronomy folks, I noticed on both pictures that there seems to be .. I don't know how to describe it.. like the craters.. there appears to be a web of silvery light, like our own power networks here on earth, if you look from above you see the matropolis web of lights know what I mean? Not implying the Moon is a matropolis or anything, just wondering what caused that affect?

Its a pattern of of orbitall debris pattern that settled down after an impact, It just reflects more light. Since his pic is heavily post-processed it appears unnatural unlike in my actual photo. Also I wander why he rotated his photo slightly.

He is not lying


The moon really is this color, just not nearly this color-saturated. If you don't believe it, desaturate this image and see how natural it looks.

this is what the author says in the source of the image.
Also, look here:
antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov...
It is the same picture with a more detailed explanation


The mosaic digitally stitches together fifteen carefully exposed high resolution images of a bright....

The fascinating color differences along the lunar surface are real, though highly exaggerated....

As for the tilt, it is also natural, depends on the relative position of the observer and the moon. I've seen the moon tilted like that.
