Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project: Comparing USGS, LPI, and LOIRP Image Resolution
Keith’s note: These images are taken from Lunar Orbiter II image LOII_092H1 Framelet 522. On the left is the highest resolution scanned version available online at LPI (or USGS).
On the right is our partially processed version that we retrieved this morning.
In addition to providing a much sharper image, note that our new image also allows contrast to be controlled such that features can seen in the areas that are darkened in the older image.
