Identify this moth?

This beautiful moth was photographed in the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project base camp. It was attracted to the lights in the screen office tent, but was safely returned to the forest by Marcel Meguessa. The moth’s wing span was more than 5 inches, and sported some intense owl eyes! Could this be a Polyphemus moth? Anyone?
