Not sure if this has been posted before, but the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mapped the entire nearside of the Moon a while ago, and the full mosaic is available here: http://wms.lroc.asu.edu/lroc_browse/view/wac_nearside
It's a pretty spectacular sight when zooming in, the resolution is 145m/pixel! :D

Amazing isn't it... Want to turn it into moon map but only have an area 92 x 66 cm to work in. Not sure whether to do one image natural at 64cm diam or two images - natural and mirror reversed 45cm diam each. What o you think?
