Format: Hardcover
From full charts to detailed renderings, this book has the best information in the best form available for systematic observation of the Moon. This is the book to buy if an authoritative reference is needed or detailed observing of the Moon is undertaken with amateur telescopes, small or large. There is plenty of information on the Moon to read, along with the many sectional drawings and photographs of prominent and unique features.

By A Customer on 14 Nov. 1997
Format: Hardcover
This is the book to use for a lunar observing program, such as the one that the Astronomical League has. The book contains a complete (for the near side of the moon) set of drawings with wonderful attention to detail. The inside front and back covers contain an index map. Each detail map contains information on the major land forms as well as a reference to the origin of the name. The only complaint I have is that the index map numbers are in red print. This means that when I am out observing and using a red flashlight (to protect night vision) I cannot read the numbers. On the other hand, when the moon is more than a few days past New, a red flashlight isn't very beneficial because the moon is so bright my eyes never completely dark adapt.

This is the only atlas I have found with enough detail to suit telescope users. Not only does it show all of the area you can see from Earth, it also lets you know who the people were that each feature was named after.

When I first opened the book, I was surprised that all the maps were drawn instead of actual photos. Thinking shortly about this I realized that photos would have been very expensive not alone impossible at the scale the author chose. It love to look through my 4 inch scope and see how fine a detail I can observe as compared with the book.
