Now this is a beautiful book, don’t get me wrong. It feels substantial; the quality of the binding, cover and photographs (and text layout) feels sumptuous, ... however, in a book that costs around 40 of your earth pounds, purporting to be an atlas with many an amateur/casual astronomer reliant on accuracy to help them, I have to say I was spectacularly unimpressed by the humongous errors that have been allowed to slip through this expensive tome.
Now this is NOT the fault of the sellers and the authors and publishers are fully responsible. There is not even a list of erratum in my 2012 print! What is even more surprising is that these errors were not only not noted by the initial expert moon photographers and academics when constructing the layout and during the editing process but were also missed a second time when translated by Mr Storm Dunlop (a lunar specialist!). Even the Sky At Night reviewer missed them. Perhaps Cambridge University Press considered the expense of a reprint too ... – anyway TO HELP BUYERS -
In Section 5 (Atlas/Hercules) the 2nd image (1st page bottom) does not belong there. It is an image of Craters (Cr) Plinius and Dawes at the southern edge of Mare Serenitatis a fair distance away to the south.
Section 15 (Abulfeda)’s 2nd image (bottom left) clearly does not belong there. The numbers do not correlate with the text as the image should be in Section 12 (Vallis Rheita) even though the reference numbers 1, 2 and 3 don’t tally with that text either!
Section 20 (Mare Serenitatis). A minor point but the authors omitted the Apollo 17 landing site where it was visible in the images. I did find this later in Section 6 (Montes Taurus) but this may not be the first place one (a casual observer) would look.
Section 41 (South Pole).

This is a beautiful set of many pictures covering 69 areas of the Moon on almost A3 pages, all nicely labelled and most showing true colours of the Moon. But this altas has one major flaw that ruins it for me. How are we supposed to actually APPLY it? What's the point of having lovely pictures of say Copernicus and not tell us WHEN to observe it and no temporal method of applying this atlas as a whole? There is a certain time in the lunar month best to see this crater or that mountain and as a lunar observer, I want to know what colongitude is best for observing a certain feature. For example, I already know the best times to see Hadley Rille (19° Co) or Eratosthenes' eastern terraces (179° Co) the Hortensius volcanoes (31° Co), the Serpentine Ridge (340° Co) or the Cauchy Scarp (134°Co) or Mare Orientale (97°Co), but unfortunately none of the pictures have their colongitudes mentioned as does the Consolidated Lunar Atlas. It is a lovely book to browse through and admire the Moon's beauty but has no practical use for an astronomer; it is more of an "armchair book" not a guide to lunar observing. I bought this book in the hope of getting more knowledge but left me partially disappointed in its lack of application; just beautiful pictures.
