About the Authors
  • Using the latest methods in digital photography and image processing, The Cambridge Photographic Moon Atlas presents sixty-nine regions of the lunar landscape in large-format images with corresponding charts. Each two-page spread features a specific region in multiple lighting situations, allowing for direct comparisons of the same landscape at different lunar phases. Detailed descriptions of each region's location and topography accompany 388 high-resolution photographs, making the Moon's craters, mountains, valleys, rilles, and other features easy to identify. Tracing the morphology of the Moon in unprecedented detail, this comprehensive and accessible visual atlas is an indispensable aid for amateur astronomers, astrophotographers, and casual observers.

    • The book provides annotated, large-scale images for visual and photographic lunar observers
    • 388 images at different lighting situations show the richness of lunar morphology
    • Covers nearly the entire near side of the Moon
