This dataset contains a computer code that adds virtual objects like stars to Apollo lunar photos (missions from the Apollo 11 to 14). All necessary data files are provided together with a detailed guide and example images. Calculations are based on my 3D photogrammetric models of the landing sites. I'm working on a peer-reviewed article with a detailed description of the underlying math. Pleas see the readme.docx file for more details.


Steps to reproduce

Use photogrammetric models of Apollo landing site and geometric relations to project virtual points in the 3D space of the landing site to individual photos taken by the astronauts.
