It's the same area, consider this like the first test to your ability to recognise some features at different resolutions and light conditions,
something you will find many time while looking at Moon (or any other planet) photos.
Unfortunately, the ATS Media portal (and most sites) does not allow images as large as those from Kaguya (12288 x 12288), that's why I posted just a
small section of the photo. Also, the photo does not cover the exact same area as the Clementine or Lunar Orbiter photos, but I guess it's enough for
This is the Kaguya image, resized to 4% of its real size, to make it closer to the resolution of the image you posted.
This is an animation with part of the Kaguya image superimposed over the Lunar Orbiter image.
As you can see the area is the same.
Now, let's get closer to the full resolution image I posted before (only with the difference that I posted first the "evening" view and this is the
"morning" view, because it looks more like the Lunar orbiter image).
At 25% zoom.
I forgot to say that this is from photo TC_MOR_02_N09E006N06E009SC, and the previous image was from photo TC_EVE_02_N09E006N06E009SC.
PS: it helps if we always post the photo's ID, that way other people can look for the photos.
