Hafield Lunar Atlas
Posted 17 December 2013 - 06:13 PM
I stumbled upon Hafield Lunar Atlas this afternoon, specifically the 2012 "digitally remastered" version, in which all of the original photographs were replaced with newly sourced digital versions.
I like the clean maps, which are a little easier to read in many respects than Rukl's.
The Atlas hints that it was one of the primary atlases for use at the telescope during the later 1960s and later decades.
Did any of you use it or still use it?

They are a little dated, but they are easy to use.

Original images remastered. Would have to see one in person before committing.

Yes. Leave it as a historical document. There are many other modern atlases (printed & electronic) for those that want higher resolution.
Don't know if I'd want a remastered, prettied-up version. For me, it's a moment in time; Hatfield's own photos and drawings. I like it the way it is.
