5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable source for identifying lunar detail
Clear and concise. This book contains high quality lunar photographs taken through a 12" Newtonian reflector. The Lunar surface is split into 16 sections, each of which has a sketch detailing crater names. At the rear of the book it gives details of each crater including diameters and co-ordinates.

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated images. Poor resolution.
Although this atlas gives good coverage of the moon at a wide range of illunination, the images are of low resolution and show little more than the major details.

This review is from: The Hatfield Photographic Lunar Atlas (Hardcover)
Clear and concise. This book contains high quality lunar photographs taken through a 12" Newtonian reflector. The Lunar surface is split into 16 sections, each of which has a sketch detailing crater names. At the rear of the book it gives details of each crater including diameters and co-ordinates. It also contains information about the film type used to capture the images. Each photograph appears as it would through a reflecting telescope i.e. upside down and back to front, so for the amateur astronomer, this is invaluable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 16 Feb. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hatfield Photographic Lunar Atlas (Hardcover)
A wonderful guide to finding your way around the lunar landscape as seen through a back-garden telescope. If you are interested in observing the Moon this really is a must have. Each section has a clear map of the region followed by several full page photos of the same area under different conditions of illumination. It is also hard wearing enough to be taken outside on a damp night and actually used at the telescope.

It is useful for finding your way around the moon but little else. Even a 50mm refractor will show far more detail. I have had a copy for years but rarely take it off the shelf even though I observe the moon regularly. Don't waste your money - you will be dissapointed.
