Day-by-day photographic guide to observing the features of the Moon through a small telescope. Whole Moon images are provided for each day of the 29-day lunar cycle, with labelled features and accompanying descriptive text. Selected lunar features are shown at high magnification to highlight and clearly illustrate certain regions and all lunar features are labelled using current IAU terminology.
'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
