Ask and Ye Shall Receive

I hope to soon see a high resolution, low sun amateur image of this area! Those were the last words of the LPOD 2 days ago,and above is the image I hoped to see! Zac Pujic must have guessed I would want to a high res view of this area and imaged it in advance of my discovery of need! His view was taken under opposite illumination conditions from the LPOD Apollo 17 (not 15 as I mistakenly said) photo, and the right (east) side of his image covers the same area. Quoting Zac, My image shows most of the features you mentioned in the LPOD paragraph, although the smaller dome with the elongated pit does not, in my image, show the pit as well as the Apollo image. This area does have everything. All it needs is a good fault line! Use the < button to go back 2 LPODs to see the Apollo 17 view and then your browser’s forward button to rapidly come back to this image - enjoy the comparison!
