    how come we have much higher resolution images of Mars than of our own moon only approx 247,000 miles away ? and mars orbiter better equipment but im guessing they dont seem to want to"waste"the money on the moon ,the best place to start a long manned trip to any other planets.IMO

    is there a site i can get most recent high res images moon other than LROC?

    Better optics today than when those moon photos were taken.
