Stadius   Leave a comment

Copernicus in the distance, Eratosthenes in the foreground, Stadius centered. From a 30 degree square selection from  ldem_32, a 32 pixel-per-degree digital elevation model of the moon produced by the LOLA science team.  STL file produced in Mathematica, lit by low sun in Blender.

Eratosthenes and Montes Apenninus in the distance, Stadius to the right with a higher sun.  To the right of Eratosthenes beyond Stadius is Sinus Aestuum.

A meshlab view of a 4-megapixel version of the same area imaged above.  From an ldem_64 height map of the Moon, reduced from the ldem_128 produced by the LOLA science team.
