Hypsometric (colored to display the relationship of differing elevations) visualization of the far side of the  Moon. Elevations are exaggerated by 3 times with an eye distance of around 5,000km. Rendered  for +Thad Szabo  using jDem846 using the LOLA 256 pix/deg cylindrical altimetry data.

I really love this image, especially considering it's the far side of the Moon - which we're totally unfamiliar with.
Love the color in this, and as Fraser said it's nice to see the far side every now and then since we never get the chance from our Earthly position.
