Apollo 15 Landing Site

Recommended Posts

Have been playing around on the LROC site and made this... The lander is first visible at a scale of 4 metres per pixel!

The lander is first visible at 4m per pixel.  To achieve that would require, at minimum, a 53 metre f/5 scope (assuming a ASI290 camera)

Assuming perfect seeing.  So don’t build such a telescope in the UK then 😂

You can see all the landers with a reasonable pair of binoculars.........

If you are observing from the right place.

Need to engage the right travel agent though.
