This outstanding lunar photographic atlas is in a class by itself, and I don't say that lightly.... This is one of the best [lunar atlases] ever produced for use by a beginning lunar observer. The images are downright spectacular and sharp. ... The text is clear and informative, and the "how-to-use-this-book" [section] is a big asset. I highly recommend this lunar atlas not only for new lunar observers, but for experienced observers as well.-- (08/01/2007) There's no question that it sets a new standard for photographic lunar atlases... the quality of Legault's images give it an appeal that reaches well beyond selenophiles.-- (03/01/2007) Splendid ... its large format is put to very good use ... exceptional detail and clarity ... This is a very fine atlas and deserves attention by school and college libraries, public observatories, and serious lunar observers.-- (04/01/2007) [Globe and Mail Christmas 2006 Gift Book selection] Brings a clarity to the lunar surface rarely seen by non-NASA mortals.--Globe and Mail (12/09/2006) Attention to detail, brilliant imagery...

Reseña del editor:

Comprehensive and lushly illustrated, this book examines Earth's only satellite in strikingly intricate detail. It allows amateur stargazers to locate hundreds of lunar features and explore them with confidence. Exceptional photographs by Thierry Legault chart the moon's features in remarkable detail. The most distinctive feature of this atlas is the use of clear overlays to identify the moon's many craters, mountains, valleys and seas visible by telescope, binoculars or the naked eye. It includes a photographic record of the moon in all its phases, maps illustrating the topography of 57 of the moon's major features, plus calendars tracking co-longitude to the year 2008 and eclipses to the year 2011.
