More about the product
The definitive Moon atlas is back again! Revised, updated, and improved with expanded text and maps, this venerable atlas is the ideal reference guide for beginning Moon-gazers and expert lunar observers alike. Along with master lunar cartographer Antonín Rükl’s exquisite maps, you’ll find comprehensive lists of lunar formations and sights. This new printing is also free of red ink, making it much easier to use at the eyepiece.
This is a great book for telescope users and a fine one for ordinary browsers. It is an up-to-date atlas of the observable part of the moon. Maps of the moon compose the bulk of the book\'s 228 pages.
The introduction discusses history, terminology, phases of the moon, and the moon\'s surface. This is followed by maps of 76 sections of the near side of the moon, each accompanied by a small locator map. Facing pages include place-names and their derivations as well as map coordinates. Following the maps are photographs of interesting lunar formations (craters, ring mountains, walled plains), advice on setting up and using a telescope, descriptions of eclipses, and a glossary. There is a thorough bibliography and index of named formations at the end of the book. One can look up Amundsen, for example, and locate the ring mountain named after him. There are new maps of the polar regions.
As seen now, this will be the last pubishing of this legendary Moon atlas, the author is over 80 and do not want any new version. The drawings are in films, will not be scanned for digital printing, in some years no printing house can use films. As seen now, this is the last chance to get Mr. Rükl\'s moon atlas.
