Colors of the moon

This image shows an image of the full moon made with a DSLR camera. Using saturation tools in photoshop the colors in the image were magnified by a huge factor showing the geological structures on the lunar surface. These colors are not artificial, but actual lunar surface colors that are strengthened many times. It's nice to see for example the rays coming from Tycho and the blueish materials surrounding younger craters on the surface. Also the lava fields can be clearly distinguished by their brownish colors.
