What an excellent idea for a synth, and such a fascinating result!

Thanks, try hitting the "A" key on your keyboard to see it from the side.

I don't understand, What is it? Are they pictures from a satalite revolving around th diameter of the moon?

While the Apollo 17 guys were on the surface of the moon, poor old Stuart Roosa (probably never heard of him for this reason) orbited the moon 75 times in the Command Module. During this time he shot high resolution (well, high res for 1972) images of the surface of the moon. This is the 28th orbit photosynthed together.

Thanks for doing this... I was about to try this on the Apollo metric camera data myself to see what would happen, and you save me the time. :)
(And the results are fantastic!)

This is still one of my favorites. I want to see all 75 rotations in one giant moon synth!

Side note, if you look at this from the side the reconstruction is wrong because the photos don't have exif data (or might have incorrect data I can't remember). If that was fixed it should come out correctly in a circle.

Where did you get the images for this? Does NASA have this easily accessible on the web somewhere?
