In an earlier thread I post some photos of some 'strangeness' in a crater I spotted whilst using the Nasa Worldwind program.

I then used the Clementine Lunar Image browser for the same co-ordinates -74 Lat / 106 Lon set at 1 pixel per 1 km and as it's taken at a different angle I thought it would show more / better detail ... lo and behold the whole crater has been smudged out !

You want to fix your links. I had to take ATS's URL out of the link to direct it to the pics.

Thanks Misfit & Internos .... I've adjusted my links too now, anyone know the code to allow the images to be visible rather than external links ?

Take the asterick after the bracket out of that code.
Had to use it so the code would show.

Or click the insert pic icon in the editor when you post to insert the URL.

A great find, thanks to the OP!

Just wanted to add some info on the crater, which is called "Rittenhouse":


Rittenhouse is a small lunar crater that is located in the southern part of the Moon's far side. It lies amidst the western outer ramparts of the immense Schrödinger walled-plain. To the west is the prominent Hale crater, just visible from the Earth along the lunar limb.


en.wikipedia.org...(crater)

The crater was named after the american astronomer David Rittenhouse:


David Rittenhouse (April 8, 1732 – June 26, 1796) was a renowned American astronomer, inventor, clockmaker, mathematician, surveyor, scientific instrument craftsman, and public official. Rittenhouse was a member of the American Philosophical Society and the first director of the United States Mint.

This image comes from Clementine dataset (UVVIS Multispectral Mosaic):

the problem that you encountered looks to be one of the many ones which affect Clementine Lunar Image Browser 1.5: but also in the original dataset, as you can see, the quality of the image is very bad: the "stretching" effect is likely due to the latitude: the more you get close to the pole, the more you see that effect.
There's a more recent version of clementine browser:
Clementine Lunar Map 2.0 (Beta)

it has less issues at least.

I've used Map a planet, it's less user friendly, but more powerful.
