About the Author

Anthony Charles Cook, Ph.D., FBIS, FRAS, is both an amateur astronomer and a professional lunar and planetary cartographer. He has worked with many leading planetary cartography research groups in the UK, Germany, and the United States. He produced a planet-wide digital elevation model (DEM) of the Moon in the year 2000, and this was used by the European Space Agency to guide its SMART-1 spacecraft down to a precise impact. Six previously unknown impact basins larger than 300 km across were discovered using this lunar DEM. Presently he is a lecturer at the Institute of Mathematics and Physics, Aberystwyth University, in the UK. He is Assistant Director of the British Astronomical Lunar Section and coordinates the Transient Lunar Phenomena observing program alongside a similar program for the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers. He has also had Digital Planetary Cartography papers published in several refereed scientific journals.


From the reviews of the second edition:

"There are a plethora of books about lunar observation, this book caters to observers who have a popular Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (SCT) design or a Maksutov design. ... The bulk of the volume provides maps and figures for the moon in 16 sections. ... For each area, there are 16 images that show what the features look like when they are illuminated by the sun at different angles. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and general audiences." (J. R. Kraus, Choice, Vol. 51 (10), June, 2014)
