I THINK they were working under the same conditions as when the LCROSS impacts the surface.
Why did they not wait for a full moon?
Probably because the moon looks flat and relatively boring when the sun is shining directly down on the hills and craters, as seen from our viewpoint. You only get to see the real texture of the moon when the sun is at an angle, which means at some time other than a full moon.
Then their world record wont last for long :S. They should have done one for the world record, (therefore, harder to top) and one for the detail.
