Quote:Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered my copy! I'm a sucker for a good lunar atlas. And Charles Wood is behind it? A no-brainer for us lunies. I like, too, that the atlas is spiral bound for easy use at the telescope.
Quote:Note: "The boxes of the 21st Century Lunar Atlas were delivered to my house on Wednesday - tomorrow they start being mailed out in the sequence that the 125 pre-orders were received."
Quote:I received mine today. It was postmarked on the 27th and sent via media mail rate (slower delivery?)At first glance it is a very high quality printing, thick glossy pages should stand up well to a lot of use. Definitely worth the cost and wait!Steve

Quote:Is it primarily based on LRO photos? Or something older?
Quote:How is the scale, compared to something like the Rukl atlas? Is there token coverage of the farside?
Quote:Are the charts rectified (no foreshortening)?Is there a lot of discussion on the origins of various features, or is it primarily an observer's atlas? Chuck Wood has a way of mingling all of it together - did he go one way or the other on this?
