Lunar Orbiter High Resolution Subframes

Photos L01-030H and L01-036H overlap and are shown as two mosaics, one for the H1 and H2 subframes and one for the H3 subframes. Photos L01-038H1, 2, and 3 are shown separately to provide maximum resolution. The locations of L01-030 and 031 H1, H2, and H3 are marked on the medium resolution photo L01-030M and the locations of L01-038H1, H2, and H3 are marked on the medium resolution photo L01-028M.

Figure 7.1. The Korolev Basin and the northern rim of the South Pole-Aitken Basin (darker surface). This is a mosaic of LO1-028M and LQ1-030M (NASA, LPI).

Figure 7.2. This is an elevation map (Topogrd2), from 180° west to 90° west and 30° south to nearly 30° north. Low elevations are dark. Three large basins are, from left to right, Korolev, Hertzsprung, and Orientale. The depression in the lower left corner is the South Pole-Aitken Basin. The contour lines are spaced at 2 km. The highest elevations, shown in white, show the mound of ejecta from the Near Side Megabasin. USGS, http://webgis.usgs.gov/pigwad/maps/the-moon.htm

Figure 7.4. The corrected radial profile of depth of the Korolev Basin, derived by subtracting the estimated elevation and curvature of the target surface. Note the clear indication of an inner ring with a radius of 100 km.

Figure 7.5. This figure shows the principal ground points and approximate area of coverage of the Lunar Qrbiter photos targeted at the Korolev Basin region. The terminator imposes the eastern boundary in the later exposures.
