Processing Lunar Images

  • Tony Buick

Part of the Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


Those of you who have read the first edition of this book may have noticed that many of the original photographs look different. This is no coincidence, nor is it anything to do with publishing. It is that many images have been enhanced using digital processing. The general aim of this is to improve the image by showing features more clearly.
