My 3D photo collage of the Moon with close ups of the six Apollo landing sites is done and on the wall! The LEM descent stages, foot paths, equipment, lunar rovers and their tracks left behind by the Apollo missions are all visible in detailed views!
I've had the metal prints for about a week, but it took an hour of sheer terror to put it together. In all my careful planning and measurements, I'd failed to consider the difficulty of lining up the the landing shots on the circular Moon background with no horizontal or vertical references. The final piece is 24x24" so that the close ups of the landing sites show up well from half a dozen feet away
The full Moon image is my image of the 2018 super blue Moon shortly before the eclipse made with a Questar telescope and Sony a6300 camera. The close up images of the Apollo landing sites were made by the LRO and are courtesy of NASA and the University of Arizona. The earth image is from the NASA Apollo 8 earthrise image from almost 50 years ago.
