Our planet’s Moon is a very rewarding target for all amateur astronomers. The surface of Earth’s only natural satellite is a treasure-trove of interesting sights. Views of intriguing craters, craggy mountains, and vast ancient lava flows can be obtained easily in small telescopes and binoculars. This affordable Moon Map makes it easy to identify more than 300 features found on the Moon, so you can enjoy learning the names of your favorite crater, mountain range, or mare region. What’s more, this detailed map also points out the locations of the six NASA Apollo mission landing sites.
Using the Moon Map is easy. Simply find the reference number of the feature you wish to identify, and then look up its name using the map’s numerical index. Conversely, if you wish to locate a specific named feature with your telescope or binoculars, use the alphabetical index on the back of the map to find the feature’s reference number, then locate the number and feature on the map. For ease of use, the reference numbers are generally laid out lunar west to east (left to right), then increment north to south (top to bottom). The correct-image map is oriented to match the Moon as it appears to the unaided eye, or in binoculars from midnorthern latitudes. Turning the map may be required to match the view seen in your telescope.
