Grimm's Mond

A German science-based photographer with the awesome name of Julius Grimm made this painting of the Moon in 1888. He took all of his lunar photos, mapped them together and eliminated the shadows to create an impressively accurate portrait. It's a large image so zoom in.
Grimm became famous for his Atlas der Astrophysik, published in 1881.
