I had seen this book in the offer of my favourite online book store. Maybe you know, it is the biggest one out there on the web. I like watching the night sky and I was always interested in deep sky objects. When I saw this book, I have realized myself that I do not know a lot about our Moon. So I bought this book. My first impression was something like "wow, it is not a huge format, it is really an A5, very handy for my bag". It contains a lot of useful and easy understandeable maps and descriptions of many terrain features. I read and look at the images and maps even when I am in the bus. I can imagine that for a real amateur astronomer it can be a very useful book. I can only recommend it.
I was looking for a book that may be interesting for me - you know, I like watching the night sky - but also for my partner. He is a kind of romantic soul, exactly like me. So I brought the book home and to be honest, with a glass of the red wine, sitting in the balcony in the evening, now we know what we can see when looking at the Moon. This book inspired me to study the surface of the Moon in more details, so I even purchased a small astronomical telescope. Let's see what will be the next, maybe some planets in the future?
