    A phenomenal work Alex - wonderfully written and illustrated with your work. With your permission printed and added to my lunar notes.
    I'd love to have your capture of Mare Crisium hanging on the wall. (BTW what month was your work in S&T? I was wanting to take a look back at it).

    Another thing - you REALLY should consider self publishing. Andy Wier's "The Martian" started out that way on Amazon - at one time you could have downloaded the Kindle version for a couple of bucks US. It was so high on the Amazon sales list it was noticed by a publishing house and the rest , as they say, is history.

    Thanks Again Alex, a much appreciated work, reference and teaching tool.

    This is an outstanding article. I often feel frustration toward the Moon when it prevents me from hunting "faint fuzzies". But this is certainly bringing me back to my earlier days when the Moon WAS the target for the night.

    Will have to take advantage of its current phase and return to the Moon!

    Thank you,
    Chris

    Excellent article! Thank you for writing it. I recently purchased my first telescope and I am very excited to view the moon and its features. The anticipation is killing me, so I will fill my brain with great and valuable information while I await delivery.

    Wow! Brilliant write up! I will be reading it a lot more times until it all sinks in, if people knew half of that stuff people would actually look at it and not just think " it's just the moon we see it every night who cares" and never just stop and take a few moments to see how great it truly is! Unfortunately I'm unable to see any of the pictures.

    BR, Brendan from oz.

    Just joined the forum and started browsing and one of the first posts I see is from someone in my home town. I was born in Avon Park, back when dinosaurs ruled the earth.
