    This particular elaboration is based on observations made March 15, 2014. Using two images taken just before and just after the Full Moon, the difference gives a 3D relief effect. Have been applied to the image filters and effects to exaggerate the details and colors. The image obtained was subjected to the use of color coded (custom palette). Note that each image proposed reveals better different geological structures and topography of the Moon. The whole thing is in good agreement with similar studies of NASA and USGS.

    Originally the same material was used to highlight the effects of Libration with this image.
