ForMoreThis extraordinary Atlas is based on high resolution CCD images of the terminator area of the Moon under 47 different illuminations. Each image is displayed across two or three pages, enabling readers to see features as small as 1-2 kilometers. For each illumination, accompanying text describes the major features shown in each view, along with larger-scale images of selected areas, indexed with their positions and dimensions. Two text chapters describe and illustrate the lunar observation techniques and the landform types. Observing data are presented through 2009. Experienced observers will find the Atlas an invaluable planning tool, while beginners will gain an understanding of lunar geography and geology. No other atlas shows the Moon under such a variety of observing conditions.
