This is to announce a website concerning finding charts and an updated
observing list for dark haloed craters, dark mantled regions, and
cryptomaria on the nearside face of the Moon for the amateur lunar
observer. 57 figures are used to illustrate features and their
positions. The 1976 ALPO Dark Halo Crater Catalogue (N=83) has been
expanded to 194 entries.


Observing List:

The DHCs have been collected into 21 regional groups. A finder chart
(generated with LTVT) and a Clementine color albedo image is provided
for each group.

15 dark mantle regions and localized dark mantle deposits on the
nearside Moon are illustrated using Clementine images.

Dark Mantle Region List:

A bibliography is provided.
