As most Moon maps are NSEW, and the moon is terrain, who uses correct image to view the moon as for binoculars and spotting scopes etc?

The correct image diagonals degrade the image quality. Use a normal non-correct image diagonal.

Ditto against CE diagonals also.

There is a mirror-reversed version as well as a regular version  of the Hatfield Photographic Lunar Atlas to match your view.
