I haven't got time to write much - let's just say that this book is absolutely brilliant and is easily the best 'astronomy' in my collection. It is easily the best lunar observation book I've ever seen anywhere for this price and my colleagues in the astronomy society agree with me (I saw their copies and then immediately went to get one of my own). If you want to look and learn about the moon then this is the book to have in your pocket (I mainly use 20 by 80 binoculars so this book is perfect for me and for people with slightly larger, beginners scopes).

I have always wanted to be able to recall features of the Moon. This guide not only names them but describes them too making recall really easy. The daily observing guide adds structure to this learning. Perfect!

I very much enjoyed this guide to our lovely and mysterious moon. I've always loved watching the moon, but this guide helped me to understand more about the moon. Thanks!

If you want to learn more about our Moon, this is the book for you....not just maps, but intelligently written and packed with information about our nearest neighbour.
Get the Binoculars or Scope out and start seeing The Moon in all its glory.

A superb book and very well worth the money. Very well researched; one could say no other when faced with such a learned barrage of fascinating facts so clearly and painstakingly presented. This is a ' must' for amateur astronomers.
but I also would have liked a large scale full moon map to pin up on a wall.

This is another one of the many Philip's books that is absolutely excellent.I have most of the Philip's astronomy books & this one is my favourite, very detailed & you can re read this book over & over!! If you are a keen amateur astronomer like myself then this book is a must!!
Buyers --- some of the Philip's books are a LOT cheaper on Ebay brand new just compare before you buy!!

A handy sized book with all the info you need to become familiar with the moon. The names of features on the moon are difficult, but that is not the fault of this well laid out book. Phillips do this sort of stuff well.
