'The Westfall Atlas could not fail to impress any lunar enthusiast. Just from the amount of work that went into the recording of so many images, this collection of lunar pictures and maps and notes will please. The choice of material (the terminator) and its reproduction for publication is excellent ! a superb, and useful, example of enterprise and achievement.' Irish Astronomical Journal 'One thing that Westfall excelled at was imaging the lunar limbs at very favourable librations; thus his images of the Humboldtianum and Orietale impact basins are more revealing than many professional photographs.'
