Buy this Apollo 10 Schmidt Crater space photo.
High quality NASA picture, slide, or Duratrans backlit transparency. NASA photograph AS10-34-5162 . Wide variety of sizes.

This is the crater Schmidt (German selenographer, 1825-84), located at the western edge of Mare Tranquillitatis, south of crater Ritter and west of Sabine, and approximately 10 miles in diameter. The most notable features of Schmidt are the sharp rim, ray pattern, relatively rough floor, and surrounding hummocky terrain. Numerous boulders, easily resolvable on a photograph of this scale and quality, can be seen in the area surrounding the crater and on the crater floor. Most of these boulders range in size from 68 to 122 m. (Source: www.schicklerart.com)
