Title: Telescope images of moon
Post by: QED on April 16, 2019, 05:56:42 PM
I found these recently online and found them interesting. Apparently one can observe evidence of the moon landing through telescopes.

Also, here is a picture of the recent Chinese moon landing on the far side. Very cool stuff.

These are not "telescope images of the moon" and one cannot "observe evidence of the moon landing through telescopes."

The images are from the LROC spacecraft.

I stand corrected.

I agree with Tom in this instance.  Although it would never be used to observe the Moons surface, even the Hubble Space Telescope would be unable to resolve details as small as anything that was left behind by the Apollo astronauts. It would be able to resolve a linear distance of about 85m.  An average amateur telescope under good conditions, just under 2km.

The LRO by comparison can resolve much, much smaller details and so yes it is able to see equipment/footprints left behind.

I would contend that LROC carries two 700 mm telescopes.

So .. you agree that there's an orbiter going around the Moon?

Sorry guys, but doesn't this quote prove that the FES agrees that the lunar landing exists, where on the Flat Earth wiki it says NASA is hoaxing?

If I had said "the pictures are from NASA's fake space crafts" I am sure the RE would have found something to divert, whine, and REEEEE about.

Instead, we got simple agreement that the pictures were not from earth telescopes.

Turns out people take exception when claim FAKE! Another victory for the FES!

I’m sure if you’d provided good evidence that the photos and mission were fake it would have been fine.
If you’re going to just declare everything which doesn’t confirm with your worldview fake without basis then yeah, that will be pointed out to you.
