    Amazing picture, if you pan into the [FONT=&quot]Sea of Tranquillity you can just see the flag that Buzz and Neil left there all those years ago.:thumb:[/FONT]

    being as the moon is 3475km across, give or take a couple, and the flag was around 1000cm x 900cm, i dont think you'd be able to see it with a telescope :Doh::Laughing:
