We report experimental results obtained on cleaved (-201) surface of Rb0.3MoO3 using low temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy under ultra-high vacuum (UHV-LT-STM). Molecular resolution has been obtained at 63 K, 78 K and 300 K. At low temperatures, both the molecular lattice and CDW superlattice were observed simultaneously in topographical constant current images.
