From the JAXA Kaguya lunar orbiter, which had HDTV cameras. This guy has up-sampled some of the footage to 4K and put it on Vimeo.

Humboldt crater anaglyph:

Below is a quick and dirty 3D cyan/red anaglyph of the crater Humboldt. It shows the central peaks to the southern edge (south up). Hopefully some members have the 3D glasses. They are cheap and easily added to your next Amazon order. I wear glasses and find the clip-on works great for me. Besides the 3D experience there is a real benefit of viewing the anaglyph. The image, of course, is composed of two different but similar views. The brain interprets the binocular view as a single image, but with the “stacking” advantage of an ideal signal to noise increase of 1.4x. Generally, anaglyphs hold up very well with a zoom increase of 200-300%.

 

My preferred method of viewing does not involve the use of colored glasses. There are two techniques for viewing of stereo pairs without aids. These are the parallel viewing and the crossed eye viewing methods.

I prefer the eyes crossed method that was taught many years ago while taking a biochemistry course, for the purpose of viewing complex folding 3D structures of proteins. Nowadays whenever shooting a photo I will usually take a shot leaning to the right and move the camera to my left for the second photo. For this Humboldt crater anaglyph the viewer should focus on smaller sections while leaning your head a little to get the 3D effect.
