Description

The image of the full moon was taken at the minimum perigee for 2010. The final step during processing involved the inversion of the monochrome image so that the mapping of white and black as well as the various intermediate shades of gray would be reversed. This technique is very useful and commonly employed for the identification of faint detail which would otherwise be more difficult to ascertain in a normal image. As indicated by the image below, features such as impact craters and ejecta as well as minute crater(let)s are now more visible with greater subtle detail and form.
