Other information[edit]

This is a retouched picture, which means that it has been digitally altered from its original version. Modifications: Ran through neatimage twice to remove artifacts then manually edited jpeg artifacts along edges and touched up dust and scratches. Tried to improve sky texture but I think I've left some posterization in the sky. Strange, because in photoshop, my copy doesn't have any posterization but even saving JPEG at highest possible quality creates posterization in the sky. If anyone can remove it, would be appreciated.. The original can be viewed here: Apollo 17 The Last Moon Shot.jpg. Modifications made by Diliff.
