Moon Mosaics

Photos of the moon suggest blue and red hues on its surface. But the color contrast is rather weak in the visible spectral range. Faint colors corresponds to regions on the moon called Mare and Highlands. Variations in the chemical composition of these regions causes color differences. The contrast between different geological features can be enhanced significantly by exaggerating color differences in moon images. All color moon images on this website show exaggerated moon surface colors. Images were taken with a Fraunhofer refractor (f=3000mm, D=200mm) and a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (C11-Celestron) at the observatory Volkssternwarte Hannover.Caption:date (yyyy/mm/dd) / color mode (mo=monochrome, RGB= color image, G-RGB=RGB with green as luminance, R-RGB=RGB with red as luminance) / resolution index (l=low, m=medium, h=high, vh= very high) /camera / comment.
