Apollo Landing Sites
This is a project that I thought would be fun for me to image.  Over the course of
one month using several different Moon charts and software packages, I was
able to locate the landing sites for all of the Apollo Missions and get them on
film.  Although it was a fun photography project, I am not really satisfied with the
quality of the images.  I will be repeating this project again this year and will add
the newer images to this album when completed.  Enjoy!
