background!! PURE CRAP!!!
One of the other forums that discuss this (cluesforum) genuinely do not understand this. Sometimes NASA takes photos at beyond hyperfocal distances
from their lenses, and they take photos everywhere from 8mm fisheyes to 600mm telephotos.
This really confuses the amateur hour photoanalysis club, who cannot understand how the background appears so close and so far, and how things are in
focus from such a long range.
I think someone did link hyperfocal distance to them at some point but they are willfully ignorant, they'd rather believe NASA fakes all these images
with a CGI program but that CGI program apparently doesn't contain camera parameters.
Who knows, it's basically born out of a lack of understanding, but I thought I'd comment on your funny sarcastic post
