    Default Photographic Lunar Atlas for Moon Observers is ready for free download



    Hi everybody,

    I am new member of this forum. I am a Hong Kong moon observers for years. Recently, I published a Photographic Lunar Atlas for Moon Obersvers in pdf format for free download. The atlas contains 900 pages and over 2000 photos of the moon under different illuminations. All photos are taken by me with a 250mm f/6 reflector. If you are interested, please go to this link for free download. Your comment is mostly welcome.

    The moderator team has investigated the offer made by Mr. Pau for a free copy of his book "Photographic Lunar Atlas for Moon Observers." We believe the offer is valid and that Mr. Pau is receiving no financial benefit from his offer. Mr. Pau requests that a donation be made to one of two charities; however, there is no obligation to do so.

    While the atlas may be a definitive book on the moon, none of us here on the moderator team can verify its accuracy. The moon atlas has 902 pages. The download file is large, 701MB. As far as we can tell the download file has no viruses or other issues. However, the Astronomy Forum cannot guarantee that the file is free of malware, viruses, adware, etc. Download at your own risk.

    Allowing this offer on the Astronomy Forum is counter to our normal practice and most likely a onetime deviation. We have done so because of the extraordinary scope, depth, and wealth of information contained in the book. As far as the two charities mentioned, the Astronomy Forum cannot verify their validity nor should their mention by Mr. Pau in his thread be construed as an endorsement by the Astronomy Forum.

    In closing, the Astronomy Forum thanks Mr. Pau for his offer. His book "Photographic Lunar Atlas for Moon Observers" is a major contribution to amateur astronomy. It shows what an amateur astronomer can do in the middle of a city with highrises and loads of light pollution.

    Its an impressive book.
    Sooooo many photos and all with discriptions and explanations. And when one considers the images are from a 1.5m wide balcony. Its a lovely book. This book must have taken a very long time to compile.

    Thanks for the link.

    Yeah, that's impressive! Good job, Mr. Pau! Now I just gotta wait for it to rise again...

    Maybe not my place, but a big "thanks" to the moderators for making this exception and allowing Mr. Pau to post his link here. I, for one, appreciate it, and I think it was well worth it.

    All the best,

    Mark
