Sunrise view of Moon's Vallis Alpes' area shown with North to left. Of interest is the rille that extends the length of Vallis Alpes. Excellent seeing allowed this very narrow rille to be captured even at the North (left) end where it is narrowest. Image has been sharpened and contrast adjusted using Registax wavelets, Photoshop CS3 and FocusMagic.
