This mirror-image Moon map is specially designed for image-reversing optics, such as refractor telescopes. Find and identify more than 1,000 lunar features. The map's unique four-quadrant design allows you to see the whole Moon at once, or to focus on individual quadrants, or any two neighboring quadrants at the same time. Laminated for protection against dew and spills.

PS and it is very beautiful indeed.
I recommend this atlas for both the amateur astronomer and the professional who needs a quick reference.
Francis J. O'Reilly
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.
The Maps are Laminated and divided into Quadrants which makes them durable and practical for use. Use them on each night to see different features as the Moon Phase Changes and Sun Light makes different features more visible thanks to the shades. Eventually, I admin that I had to supplemented my viewing with Moon Phase Maps and of course the ultimate amateur challenge for lunar observers [The Lunar 100 List]; which transforms your viewing into a more challenging and enjoyable experience.
If Like me within few weeks or even days one feature starts looking like another; then fear not as the solution for the inquisitive soul is waiting. Simply, get your self a Moon Observers Guide or Atlas to learn the Science of the Moon and unfold the Secrets of its Geology and thus start seeing and appreciating what you see more and more. And remember, in all those nights, these Maps will be your reliable companion.
Happy Moon Lighting!!!
