Handy Moon Map Sep 23, 2008
This is the perfect size to sit next to your telescope and explore the moon with.
What more could you ask for? Aug 26, 2008
Alright, here's the skinny.
1. It's a reverse veiw map. So it looks the same as the view through your refractor with a star diagonal or SCT. 2. Rukl knows his business. The map is detailed, and shows you everything you can see. 3. It's laminated. It won't get damaged from dew or those inevitable drink spills. 4. The "hinging" system makes it easy to use. It folds nicely, isn't bulky, and is easy to carry, store, and use at the eyepiece. 5. At this price you can't go wrong just TRYING it.
Face it. This is a moon map that you will USE. If you don't need the reversed view (perhaps you prefer binoculars or the naked eye to a telescope) there is a non-reversed version available, too.
For price, performance, and just plain smart design, this is MUST HAVE if you're looking for a moon map.
Viewing Moon by telescopes Apr 5, 2008
I am workinkg part time for Planetary of University of Santiago of Chile, and when is necessary watch the moon by telescope, I was received many children to make excursions over moon surface. Then I was used this map, to locate place where astronauts from Apollo 11, put their feet first time on the Moon. I give to children locate trought mirror scope, many moon features: Seas, Hills, craters, until arrive aproximately over site, where man from earth, arrive there. Is very funny to children and adults too. Fernando Franco Blü.
Designed For Use In The Field Jan 15, 2008
Both versions of this map are drawn by Antonin Rukl whose Atlas of the Moon in book form is currently the gold standard for readily available paper lunar atlases. While the scale is smaller here, the amount of detail will be sufficient for the vast majority of telescopic observers.
But what distinguishes these maps is how well they're designed. Laminated, folding in quarters and just about the perfect size, it's plain that Sky Publishing meant these to be practical and rugged.
Also, two very nice touches. The lunar surface features are repeated where the map folds so no details are lost "in the ditch". And each map quadrant shows the libration zones.
This map is excellent.
Love Our Moon, Now Can See It All Anytime Oct 28, 2007
I loved this Mirro-Image of the Moon so much I bought two, one to hang in my bedroom and one to use at the Telescope. With my Celestron C8-SGT and the mirror image I'm not constantly correcting myself and can find eveything so much easier. And its laminated, when helps when the Dew and late night moisture comes in. I have about ten sky atlases, but only this one and another are laminated.
