The Photographic Atlas of the Moon is a day-by-day photographic guide to observing the features of the Moon through a small telescope. Compiled by three keen amateur astronomers, each image was produced using a 40cm telescope and high-resolution low speed film. Whole Moon images are provided for each day of the 29-day lunar cycle, with labelled features and accompanying descriptive text. Selected lunar features are shown at high magnification to highlight and clearly illustrate certain regions. All lunar features are labelled using current IAU terminology. A comprehensive set of appendices detail the phases of the Moon, give a chronology of lunar selenography, and index all lunar features named in the text. This atlas is an invaluable reference guide for amateurs engaging in lunar observations with a small telescope.
