only found this in PDF on the web; it's a huge file approaching
with over 300 scanned pages; I've downloaded it and had Kinko's
and spiral bind it for me). Download from this site (note that
looks like you have to download each section separately, but
an embedded link to get it all in a single download so read the
ATLASES (Photographic, Sketched, and Virtual) -
The previous books provide good information, but a good atlas is
MUST for doing the Lunar 100. I have several and use more than
regularly (mostly VMA, Rukl & Chu) plus the S&T laminated moon
Virtual Moon Atlas (VMA): This is probably THE best lunar atlas
software on the market and it is totally FREE and downloadable. Load
the "pro" edition to get all features and photos.
The Photographic Moon Book by Alan Chu - Free and downloadable;
another huge one at 105MB, but it is all HiRes photography.
another you can send to Kinko's for printing/binding..

by Atonin Rukl - A must have for the serious Lunar
Lunatic. It's nearly $40 but is a beautiful and precise
atlas of the entire near side of the moon including libration
