A Gray, Cold Place Being Amazingly Beautiful 18. Dezember 2012
Von S. Rudge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I have always had an interest in amateur astronomy and have owned a simple telescope for much of my life. While it is interesting to see what lies beyond our solar system, for me nothing matches looking at our nearest neighbor. The gray rock which circles the Earth has heights and depths which seem to constantly change. With the naked eye it has transfixed scientists, scholars and poets for all time. With even the most basic telescope or pair of binoculars endless details emerge and magically shift as shadows move across the cold, pocked surface. What a wonderful gift this moon is; familiar but so mysterious. Even the word itself - moon - is a haunting word which may be an onomatopoeia derived from the primal sounds both man and beast made as they came under the authority of this sentinel of night.

The Cambridge Photographic Atlas of the Moon is an outstanding resource for those who like to study the Moon. The oversized book is a comprehensive atlas, so you can imagine what the structure of the book is if you have ever seen an oversize atlas of the Earth. It contains an incredible amount of information about the Moon including topics such as origin, composition, and structure. This section is followed by page after page of amazing, clear, sharp photographs and text which detail every visible region of the moon. If you do like to look at the moon, even with only the naked eye, an extremely simple search will provide details about features you can always see.

There is not much color in this book. It is a photographic survey of a gray, lifeless world which is incredibly beautiful in its own way.

Detailed moon 27. November 2012
Von wogan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is a good book for those who gaze up at the moon with telescopes, binoculars or just observing. The large pages and photos give one a better resolution than on many electronic screens, plus this has the advantage of being able to put your finger at an index page to find information easily and leaf back and forth.

The views are strictly of the side facing the earth. There is some mention and labeling of where man or unmanned landers have landed on the surface. There is some comparison of different lunar phases and in a thorough introduction it includes how to use the book, chemical compositions, and charts of periods in history, scales, crater formation. Illustrations in this section are well done. It does contain 192 pages, for the price that it was listed at, I would have expected more.

As for the photography; it is crisp and clear and extremely detailed. There are no photos taken from the surface. It would have been interesting to have these as a comparison and I was disappointed that they were not included. Each photo has the degrees and a bit about the area. There are large photos on the fly leaves with a key to the sections of photographs. A glossary and an index of the lunar features are included, along with a list of further resources and websites.
This book makes the features much clearer than in other sites I have found and would serve moon gazers to become much more skillful in their observations.

388 Photographs of the Harsh Mistress 6. Dezember 2012
Von Thomas Wikman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The Photographic Moon Atlas is a big nice looking hardbound book that looks good on any coffee table, or in a library. The book features a lot of nice photographs of the near side (facing Earth) of the moon. The near side of the moon is divided into 68 regions which are described in order. Each section (region) feature photographs and relevant information. The inside of the covers feature an overall map and a key to the regions/maps so that you can easily identify what you are looking at when gazing at the moon. Almost all photographs are taken from Earth. There is a small section on the far side of moon with a fuzzy overall photograph composed from a lunar orbiter.

The book starts out with an introduction with information about the moon. The introduction also describes the topography, geology, and geography of the moon as well as how the various formations such as craters and the so called Maria were formed as well as how the moon itself was formed. Observation techniques are also discussed. The book also has a glossary and an index.

We've gained a lot of knowledge about the moon surface and its composition via telescopes, spectroscopy and lunar samples from the Apollo missions. It is truly amazing that we also know something about the crust and the inside of the moon and that is partially thanks to seismographs that were placed on the Moon by the Apollo missions. However, the book also presents us with a scientific mystery. The near side and the far side of the moon look quite different because the crust is on average double as thick on the far side. Why is the crust much thicker on the far side? The book presents theories but nothing is certain.

The information included with the photographs is interesting, well written and concisely presented, and the photographs are nice and detailed. However, there are no photographs taken from the surface of the moon (NASA photos), and except for one picture nothing from lunar orbiters. The photographs are taken by amateur astronomers and so called astrophotographers, so the book is not as cool as it could have been. I liked it and I recommend the book, but I give a rating of four stars.

You will not be disappointed 13. Dezember 2012
Von Dr Mike - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The Cambridge Photographic Moon Atlas is not what I expected. It is MUCH MORE than I expected. The photography is superb. All of the images appear to be digital composites with exceptional clarity. There are in fact several pages that provide an overview of lunar photography if you feel inspired to try your hand at this instead of simply being a visual sightseer. The contents of the book are fairly simple. The bulk of the book are photographs of 69 sites on the Moon. Each site is presented with photographs that give views at different times relative to the illumination by the Sun. Key features are labeled by number or callout lines. All of the photographs are large and have excellent, even contrast. This is a large, hard-bound book and may best used when laid open upon a table. However, there is no reason why it can't be taken with you to the telescope and used as a reference guide. The font of the text is fairly large and easy to read even though it is black on gray. I think the printing of black on gray is quite nice and may even be helpful if you were to use the book at the telescope because it will reduce glare.

The front of the book has some helpful background information to get you started. I already mentioned the photography section, but it includes information on filtration, map orientation, height of lunar features, definitions used to classify features, nomenclature, and some background information on surface geology of the lunar surface. The back material has a glossary, page index of lunar features, a short bibliography, and image credits.

This is a simple book that is nicely done. I can't think of anything I would change. I'm not sure if this comes in a digital version, but it should. This would give you a version that could be used on a tablet computer at the telescope, and this large print edition that can be used indoors at a table for study and planning.

A guide for stargazers, aspiring astrophotographers and more. 6. Dezember 2012
Von E.Swope - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The Cambridge Photographic Moon Atlas is more than just a picture book. Laden with crisp detailed pictures, the book is presented in such a way as to facillitate following the trajectory and rotation of the moon (via telescope, or any handy optical instrument) along with information to help aspiring astrophotographers learn how to best capture what they can see.

The guide includes entries from Astrophysicists and photographers from the four corners of the world (figuratively speaking) including information on cameras, filters, and software, as well as optics.

As one would expect from a guide published by Cambridge University, it also contains information on the current state of our knowledge (and speculation) about the moon, it's features and how they arose as well as some historical perspective.

It is a large-format book with beautiful photographs which would make a nice companion for a telescope, binoculars, or even a super-zoom camera, a nice gift for a young scientist, or house-hold with same. My kids are in high school and college now, but this is a book I would have given them when they were young. The science is not out of reach, and it gives them (and us) a glimpse of what we could only imagine just a few years ago.

We have a telescope in the house, but not one which will give us this close a view. This book, however, might just be the inspiration for my husband to dust it off and take it out again and to engage the kids in an aspect of science they do not get much in the classroom.

If you are interested in getting a closer look, catching up on what has been going on in research since NASA was last on the front page or learning more about what you can do with your telescope and camera then this is the book for you. I can say without reservation that it is the best, most comprehensive guide to our satelite that I have seen yet.
