The Eastern Far Side Region: Birkhoff to Hertzsprung
- 664 Downloads
This region extends from the Birkhoff Basin to the Hertzsprung Basin (see Figure 10.5 for detailed coverage). The Eastern Far Side Region was photographed by Lunar Orbiter 5 in order to complete coverage of the far side. Because of mission constraints, the photographs were taken at an early, high orbit, which reduced the resolution. That is why this chapter covers a relatively large area with the usual number of photographs.
