On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the NGA in Washington has staged an exhibition on the visual depiction of the moon in lunar photography. The exhibition also contains 19th century photogravures by astronomers seeking to map the surface of the moon, demonstrating how the 19th century was in many ways the ultimate age of scientific enquiry.
