The atlas is 280mm X 230mm, 112 pages spiral bound glossy pages.
The atlas starts with the usual history of the Moon and description of some of the features, landing sites.
The Lunar surface is divided up into 28 sections and each section gets 2 pages dedicated to it. One page shows the area in question, complete with names of prominent features. Also listed on this page are any of the Lunar 100 objects that are in the current area. The other close ups of the key features in that area and descriptions.
There are also 8 limb maps howing the craters as they would appear if viewed from overhaed, rather than the view we get from Earth, nice to see what we occasionaly get a glimpse of.
At the back of the atlas are some charts showing the Lunar basins, mares and Lunar landing sites.
The final part is 4 pages on the far side of the Moon, interesting, but not useful from an observers pont of view.
All the images are excellently detailed, much better than my Hatfeild atlas, so certainly an upgrade from that. Pretty pleased with the paper quality, although how it copes with a damp autumn night remains to be seen. I think i may seal it in a polythene bag when outside.
Is it any better than some of the online atlas available, particularly the virtual moon atlas? Probably no, but its nice not to need a laptop/mobile and i certainly prefer to glance down at an open page on a book.
