Do not overlook Storm Dunlap's "Atlas of the Night Sky" (Collins, 2005) with 16 Moon charts by Rukl, plus mirror-reversed versions (smaller scale). It can be bought cheaply on the used market.


My copy of this came today. There are no 16 Moon charts, and nothing by Rukl at all. The only Moon chart is a very crude 2-page map, pretty much a binocular finder chart. It's published by Crescent, not Collins.


Could you have been thinking of another book?


(There is a nice 10-double-page star atlas by Wil Tirion, though; very similar to the Cambridge Star Atlas.)


(Wait - I said that wrong: 5 double-page charts; 10 pages total.)
