[rascstoon] Lunar Observing Program
- Since it always seems to be clear only when the moon is bright, I
thought I would dust off my copy of the Isabel Williamson Lunar Program
and start on that. So of course now it is cloudy when the moon is out too.
Starting into the program, the first thing I noticed is that it relies
heavily on the "Atlas of the Moon" by Rukl, which is out of print. In
particular it requires finding lettered craters which are not on any
moon map, or moon software like Virtual Moon. Used Atlases are
available on Amazon if one wants to pay the price. After a long search
I finally found an experimental website of Rukl's moon pages, complete
with lettered craters, http://the-moon.wikispaces.com/Rukl+Index+Map
Now I have something to do whether the moon is shining or not, if the
clouds will go away.
- That looks like a work around. I'm glad I have the paper version however as I'm color blind and I found it very difficult to read the type on the maps on the web page.I wonder if we don't have a copy or two for sale, it seems to me we did. perhaps check with Bruce to verify.J
