Three essential items for Moon observers.
The Moon is usually the first celestial body that captures an amateur astronomer's attention and imagination. Its large size, close proximity and brightly illuminated features makes it a favorite subject of study for astronomers of all levels.
Moonwatch is the convenient combination of three useful items for observing the Moon. These include:
- Moon Observer's Guide book
- Highly detailed map of the Moon's near side
- Photographic poster showing the Lunar phases.
The Moon Observer's Guide is a highly illustrated, practical introduction to moon-watching. It is organized with a twenty-eight day observing diary, and features tips on recording observations and helpful advice on Lunar photography.
The Moon Map (40" x 27") is a highly detailed look at the Moon's near side. Hundreds of physical features - all of which can be seen with binoculars or a telescope - are labeled and indexed, including the locations of Lunar landings. The sidebar text offers practical guidance on moon-watching and highlights spectacular features. A smaller map of the far side completes this comprehensive depiction of the Lunar surface.
The Moon poster (34 1/2" x 23") is a photograph showing all the Lunar phases. The poster is double-side, showing how the Moon is seen from both the southern and northern hemispheres.
Moonwatch is an ideal starting point for the growing numbers of amateur astronomers.
