'The concept of providing a day-by-day photographic guide for observing Lunar features throughout an entire Lunation, specifically aimed at owners of small telescopes, is excellent ! I recommend the book for those wishing to have a crash course on the Moon's features !'. Mike Brown, Popular Astronomy '! it is a splendid guide to identifying the various features; I have never seen this better done. The text is written in a charmingly informal style, and it is clear that the authors are real enthusiasts - or lunatics, as they call themselves! I have been observing the Moon for over seventy years, and I have a great deal of lunar material, but this delightful and refreshing Atlas will have an honoured place in my library.' Patrick Moore, The Observatory '! a beautifully presented guide to observing lunar features with small telescopes ! an excellent photographic lunar day-by-day guide and I can certainly recommend it to owners of small telescopes and less-experienced observers. All you need is a month of clear skies to follow an entire Lunation!' Gordon Nason, Astronomy & Space
