The Colors of the Moon
This color enhanced image shows the surface of the moon. The colors give clues as to the mineralogy of the moon's surface. Also, at the sites of many impact craters we can see that deeper material exposed by the impact is of a different composition than the material on the surface.

Image taken using a 20" f/8 RCOS Ritchey-Chr?tien Cassegrain w/ Field Corrector.
