This image shows a lunar phase very similar to that expected to be seen at the time of SMART-1 impact. The impact site is situated in the dark area at the bottom left of the picture (North is up, East is left).
To obtain this image, a 7-inch Starfire refractor telescope with 1650-mm focal length, was used, with a Canon EOS 300D camera (1/20 s exposure time, 100 ASA).
