Peter Grego, a well-known Moon expert, shares his enthusiasm and expertise in this informative book.

Using detailed sections of Moon map for each day, the author explains when to look for which features, enabling you to plan your own lunar explorations. Colourful diagrams, stunning close-up images and straightforward text explain the origin and appearance of the different types of surface feature. Eclipses are always eagerly followed by astronomers, and the author explains the best way to observe and record these fascinating events. "Philip's Moon Observer's Guide" is divided into seven chapters: Lunar geology and the Moon's features; The Moon in space; The lunar observer's equipment; Moonwatching; Recording your observations; Eclipses and occultations; and, The space-age Moon".
