Technical Details:
LOI-102 H1, 2 & 3. High-resolution camera (610 mm focal length). Like all Lunar Orbiter images this one was composed of long framelets that were laid down next to each other and rephotographed. Mattias Malmer removed some of the striping and Don Davis manually removed the remainder.
