Images of the Moon taken May 15, 2000

On May 15, 2000, Phil LaRock of Kodak brought a DCS 660M digital camera to the RIT Observatory. He and Michael Richmond experimented with it to take pictures of the nearly full Moon (12 days old). Below are the results. The images shown below have been binned 4x4 for convenience in displaying and downloading them. Please contact us if you are interested in the originals (which are 3040 by 2008 pixels).

There are 5 images below -- here are thumbnails, for orientation:

The images can be overlapped to make a mosaic showing about half of the moon's visible hemisphere:
