No problem, Thomas. It was a fun exercise :)

I tried to tackle craters today, with mixed success. It's a surprisingly
difficult thing to model. Attached is an attempt to make a surface suitable for
close up shots. I went a bit overboard with the hills and small-scale noise, and
as a result the craters sort of got lost. (But that happens in real life as
well, if you've taken a close look at some of the Apollo moon landing photos.)
