Three images taken recently and finally processed of crater Moretus, Casatus and Newton all taken at extreme magnifacation because the weather was still optimum after imaging Mars on these days and stable and its phase (Shadows) all located in the southern pole region. (South is on Top)

Those are some fantastic images. Shooting near the poles makes it look like you are in orbit about the moon.

These are great! It looks like we are flying low over the Moon.

Thanks Rick, Andy. Taken these images at this angle and magnification sure gives a 3D look of the terrain. Here is another image taken almost two years ago and posted here, boy time flys :) Clear Skies to All
