A note on the Lunar Day. The definition of Colongitude.
I've divided this page into nine parts. 1, a page, itself divided into four, showing close-up pictures of craters and other features at varying scales. 2, a page showing the phase of the Moon for each day of a lunar cycle. From here you can see some large mosaic pictures. 3, a page indexing high-resolution images of the whole Moon. 4, a page illustrating how the Moon may be imaged in the day time. 5, a page of pictures taken at Full Moon. 6, a set of images of the Apollo landing sites where men have landed on the Moon. 7, I discuss, briefly, the libration of the Moon. 8, I show some pictures of earthshine. Finally, if you click on the little animation above you can see a brief discussion of the Earth-Moon system (but be aware, it loads a 428K file).
|Close-up pictures of craters and other features. The first page is an index to a large collection of images.||The Moon on each of 28 days of a lunar cycle.||An index of the high-resolution pictures of the whole Moon taken with a Canon 1100D DSLR camera and my 8-inch Ritchey-Chrétien telescope. As I get these pictures, entries will be added there which are links to the full pictures. They are also accessible from my 28-days page.|
|The Moon in Daylight||On this page I illustrate that the Moon may be imaged quite successfully in broad daylight, and describe how I go about it.||I took a number of pictures at full Moon, some in exaggerated colour.||The manned landing sites|
|.||Here I discuss the libration of the Moon.
The page loads a 547K demonstration.
