The first high-definition images of the moon have been captured by the lunar satellite Kaguya. The images, courtesy the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and the Japan Broadcasting Corporation, were taken in orbit at an altitude of about 60 miles.

Pretty fun to watch. You get good view that you can then compare with your Dobsonian telescope.
