Designed for day-to-day observing of the moon and its features.

New Atlas of the Moon examines Earth's only satellite in strikingly intricate detail. Comprehensive and lushly illustrated, this book allows amateur stargazers to find hundreds of lunar features and explore them with confidence. Exceptional photographs by Thierry Legault chart the moon's features in remarkable detail. Serge Brunier's authoritative text speaks to the romance humankind has had with the moon.

The most distinctive feature of this atlas is the use of clear overlays to identify the moon's many craters, mountains, rilles and maria visible by telescope, binoculars or the naked eye. The atlas also includes:

A day-by-day photographic record of the moon in all its phases The moon's history, mythology, astronomical significance, and influence on Earth Maps illustrating the history and topography of 57 of the moon's major features The motion of the moon and lunar eclipses Detailed instructions on observing the moon through telescopes Co-longitude calendars to the year 2008 Basic formulas for calculating co-longitude for any future date Calendars tracking moon phases and lunar and solar eclipses to 2011.
