    With the all whistling software available... there are arguemnt that all these photos released by NASA, are they reliable. Though the majority have to accept that they are authentic.

    There are strong opposing view points about the lunar landing pictures, released during the 60s, saying that they were fakes.

    Your valauble opinions appreciated.

    Considering that many of these images can also be seen from earth, with our own telescopes, any such "arguments" are nonsense.

    As for the lunar landing, that has NOTHING to do with this thread, so stop trolling. That is my valuable opinion.

    Anyone subscribing to notions that the lunar landing pictures are fakes deserves to get his head checked.

    If you don't trust NASA, that's your own problem. They're just doing their job releasing what they can and here you are claiming it's fake. And the reason for claiming it's fake? "my friend told me that his friend told him"

    I think it's ok to post process the pictures. Here in sg where the sky conditions are bad, our post processing, while not as extreme, can get pretty aggressive too.
