Lunar orbiter images

Lunar orbiter of crater in xephem viewer

  • xephem CD-Roms arrived from US today, about a week after I ordered the package.
  • The second disc makes the entire Lunar Orbiter photograph collection available to xephem
  • Click on a lunar disc (viewable up to x6 scale) and bring up the feature name
  • Apple-click to bring up a dialog box with information
  • Click a button in the information dialog to load the appropriate Lunar Orbiter photo
  • Nice red overlay provides feature details and crater names

Alas, no interactive search on the list of Lunar features… The Digital Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon does allow searching by feature name, coordinate or by photo number.
