Ptolemaeus Sunrise

image by Tom Harradine

Here is a set of views of the Crater Ptolemaeus at the last First Quarter. I used the LTVT to create the oblique views demonstrating the lighting and terrain/curvature of the Moon surrounding the 150-odd km crater. The shadows visible are those captured in the original image at top left.
