Charles J. Byrne, "Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Near Side of the Moon"

Springer | 2005 | 329 pages | PDF | 66 MB

In 1967, Lunar Orbiter Mission 4 sent back to Earth a superb series of photographs of the surface of the Moon, despite severe degradation caused by scanning artifacts and the reconstruction processes involved in transmission from lunar orbit.

Using 21st century techniques, Charles Byrne ? previously System Engineer of the Apollo Program for Lunar Orbiter Photography ? has removed the artifacts and imperfections to produce the most comprehensive and beautifully detailed set of imagesof the lunar surface.

The book has been organized to make it easy for astronomers to use, enabling ground-based images and views to be compared with the Orbiterphotographs. The photographs are striking for their consistent Sun angles (for uniform appearance). All features have been identified with their current IAU-approved names, and each photograph has been located in terms of latitude and longitude. To help practical astronomers, all thephotographs are systematically related to an Earth-based view.

S. M. Chong, Albert Lim, P. S. Ang, "Photographic Atlas of the Moon"

Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 0521813921 | 156 Pages | PDF | 90 MB

The Photographic Atlas of the Moon is a daily photographic guide to observing the features of the Moon through a 40cm telescope and high-resolution, low-speed film. Whole Moon images are provided for each day of the 29-day lunar cycle, with labelled features and descriptive text. Selected lunar features are shown at high magnification to highlight and clearly illustrate certain regions.

All lunar features are labelled using current IAU terminology. A comprehensive set of appendices detail the phases of the Moon, give a chronology of its lunar selenography and index all lunar features named in the text.

Charles A. Wood, "The Modern Moon: A Personal View"

Sky Publishing | ISBN: 0933346999 | March 2004 | PDF | 232 pages | 49.7 MB

“ Charles Wood's Exploring the Moon column in Sky & Telescope magazine delights readers each month. Now Wood brings his insightful and clear prose about our closest celestial neighbor to you in this new book.

Drawing on both traditional telescopic observations of the Moon and the modern explorations of the Apollo, Clementine, and Lunar Prospector missions, The Modern Moon: A Personal View is an authoritative guidebook that tells readers both what to look for and why to look. Set up your telescope and let Wood unravel the Moon's complex past as you gaze at lunar vistas.

Brian Cudnik, "Lunar Meteoroid Impacts and How to Observe Them (Astronomers' Observing Guides)"
Springer | 2009 | ISBN: 1441903232 | 256 pages | PDF | 11,4 MB

The face of the Moon we see today has been substantially etched by the effects of meteor impacts. Craters on the Moon are the result of ancient impacts with large meteorites - or small asteroid-like bodies - which produced both primary craters (where the meteorites hit) and secondary craters (where material hurled high above the surface crashed back down). Even some of the vast lunar "seas" - actually basalt plains from ancient volcanic eruptions - may have been the result of impacts that triggered lava outflows. The era of major impacts on the Moon may have passed, but lunar meteorites may well be the cause of what are known as Lunar Transient Phonomena ("LTP" or sometimes "TLP") flashes and puffs of gas or vaporized rock or dust that are observed on the Moon's surface. This book looks at the way the Moon has been shaped by meteorites, proposes lunar meteorites as the most likely cause of most LTPs and describes in practical detail how amateur astronomers can observe impacts on the Moon, past and current.

Summary: A treasure, but not your typical observing guide !
Rating: 5

Thorough book about "Lunar Transient Phenomena - LTP" and "Lunar Impact Features" specifically Craters and Maria. It covers the historical and scientific background of the various features, how to identify them and co-ordinate your observational efforts with other around the world and make your own contributions to this illusive part of Astronomy. As indicated by the book's Description "Observe geology in the making on the Moon's surface".

Unlike the other book by Springer under the title "The Moon and How to Observe It (Astronomers' Observing Guides)" which is intended to any one interested in observing the moon, this book I believe is targeted to a few Dedicated Amateurs or even professionals who are curious about these Features and Phenomena and want to know the facts from an expert in the field "Brian Cudnik" who has done a magnificent job in summarizing his life experience in this field wonderfully within the pages of this book. I will not attempt to discourage anyone from acquiring the book, on the contrary it's a treasure and scientifically intriguing; but it's not your typical observing guide as its end goal aims at making active observations of current events that are more or less rare and hard to detect, observer and capture.
Last Thought, this book offers an observation challenge, are you up to it?! Happy Hunting!!

Curtis Wilson, "The Hill-Brown Theory of the Moons Motion"
Springer | 2010-06-01 | ISBN: 144195936X | 308 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB

This book, in three parts, describes three phases in the development of the modern theory and calculation of the Moon's motion—the last of which, in 1984, resulted in the transfer in the responsibility of producing lunar tables from the Nautical Almanac Office in Washington, D.C., to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA—definitively ending an era. The mathematical, philosophical, and historical interest in the analytic solution to the lunar problem using the Hill–Brown method still engages celestial mechanicians and is the primary focus of this work.

Part I explains the crisis in lunar theory in the 1870s that led G.W. Hill to lay a new foundation for an analytic solution, a preliminary orbit he called the "variational curve." Part II is devoted to E.W. Brown's completion of the new theory as a series of successive perturbations of Hill's variational curve. Part III describes the revolutionary developments in time-measurement and the determination of Earth-Moon and Earth-planet distances that led to the retirement of the Hill–Brown theory in 1984.

The book uses some calculus and differential equations, but the text is largely understandable without advanced knowledge in these areas. Amateurs of astronomy, as well as instructors and scholars of the general history of science, would find this book of significant interest.
