Earth Sciences & Geography Geophysics & Geodesy. The Hatfield Photographic Lunar Atlas.

This new version updates some of the maps, names and technical data, but uses Commander Henry Hatfield's original - and unexcelled - photographic plates, taken with a purpose-built 30 cm reflector.

The Hatfield SCT Lunar A. .has been added to your Cart. This book was the last and posthumous work of the noted British amateur astronome.the observer can study the moon with the eyepiece in one hand and the lunar atlas in the other, matching the part of the moon observed with the photographs and maps in the other. It is an effective, fast way of learning the Moon. an amateur’s introduction to the magic of lunar observing, this is perfect and experienced observers will enjoy the photographs and maps just as much. Brian Harvey, Astronomy and Space, August, 2006). The Atlas is divided into sixteen sections, each of which is made up of five or more photographic plates together with a map. Each map is based primarily of the facing plate.

The SCT Lunar Atlas shows the MoonÆs surface (the superb photographs from the Hatfield Photographic Lunar Atlas) and the associated detailed maps exactly as they appear when observed through an SCT. This makes it possible for amateur obersvers to identify craters, mountains, et. ith ease - something that is otherwise almost impossible because of having to visualise how a conventional lunar atlas would look in a mirror! Facing pages provide ÆnormalÆ photographs (the way the Moon looks to the naked eye, but magnified) so that users can also learn the positions of features as they appear in conv.

This version of the lunar atlas updates some of the maps, names and technical data, but uses Commander Henry Hatfield's original photographic plates, taken with a purpose-built 30cm reflector. The atlas is divided into 16 sections, each of which is made up of five or more photographic plates together with a map. Where detail is lacking on this primary plate (particularly near the Moon's limb) supplementary detail is provided by one or more of the other plates in a particular section.

Long regarded as the finest photographic lunar atlas available, The Hatfield Lunar Atlas is a model of accuracy and clarity. This new version updates some of the maps, names and technical data, but uses Commander Henry Hatfield's original - and unexcelled - photographic plates, taken with a purpose-built 30 cm reflector. The Atlas is divided into sixteen sections, each of which is made up of five or more photographic plates together with a map. Each map is based primarily of the facing plate.

Being in amateur astronomy for many years, mainly observing deep sky objects, I've now turned my scope back to the moon and have begun sketching craters and other lunar features. From free sites online to iPhone apps of the lunar landscape, none of them compare to this atlas. Yes, like the other reviews say the photos are grainy and not entirely sharp, but come on, the pictures are MORE than clear enough. The pictures were taken with the authors 30cm (essentially 12 inches) reflector...so of course the pictures are not going to look like Clementine's photographs or something from Star Trek or the old Apollo 13 movie. I love how the atlas shows a photograph of different grids of the moon, then shows close up a legend of what's what drawn out exactly the same as the photo. What I especially love about the atlas is how it shows the moon pictures in its full phase where the light flattens out all the major features and a photo of the same area with shadow details from a phase where the sun is shining at almost 90 degrees casting side-lighting. In short, I would recommend this text to anyone in astronomy interested in a more detailed look at the moon. As a person like myself who sketches celestial objects...this atlas is, in my opinion, gold!

The photos in the Atlas were taken in the 1960`s using B/W film and a home made 12" telescope. There are usually a variety of shots of each region taken under different libations as well as close-ups of important features. The accompanying diagrams are based upon the clearest photo and are detailed & hand written giving the names of craters etc.Apparently the feature names in the diagrams were updated in the 1980`s when a new repository of names was published.

THE HATFIELD PHOTOGRAPHIC LUNAR ATLAS is a modern, updated and slightly revised version of the classic (~1968) AMATEUR ASTRONOMER'S PHOTOGRAPHIC LUNAR ATLAS by Sir Henry Hatfield. The original work was published just before man landed on the moon - and thus moon observation was a "craze".
This "new" version, bearing Hatfield's name, uses Hatfield's original Lunar photographs that were taken, obviously, in the 1960's.
I've read other people's reviews, most of whom complain about the quality of the photographs. These photograph's were truly remarkable in the 60's ... and 70's ... and even for the 80's into the early 90's. Are these the best photograph's for today's standards? No. But part of the beauty of this book are the remarkable vintage photographs (just as many of us marvel at the sight of vintage cars or vintage motorcycles).
Specifically, this book is a "nice" (not great) photographic atlas of the moon. The sketches are "very good" (maybe not perfect). And the book's format/layout is STILL very useful for the casual and amateur astronomer.
Yes, the RUKL MOON ATLAS is THE STANDARD. But this atlas has been out of print for several years. A copy of Rukl's was recently listed for $579 on eBay! And I've seen Rukl's sell for $100-$175 on other Internet sites.
In summary, is Hatfield's the best? No. Is it very nice? Yes. Though I'd also agree that the price for this book is a bit too high ($25 is more reasonable), when compared to Rukl's, is THE HATFIELD PHOTOGRAPHIC LUNAR ATLAS worth $35? Yes.
It is what it is: an updated reproduction of a classic. It doesn't have all of the bells & whistles a 2004 Corvette has, yet isn't it still a joy to drive a vintage Corvette? You bet it is!

The importance of a good reference is incalculable for those who do any serious lunar observing, or for those who need to know exactly what they're looking at (or at least what they should be seeing). The Hatfield Atlas is by far the best lunar reference available. But rather than subject you to further ramblings-on about the merits of this book, I'll just state some straightforward points in simple fact:
The membership of our club includes about 140 dedicated amateur and professional astronomers. Many of us gather at our dark site facility to attend monthly star parties. If there is even the slightest moon that evening there may be a dozen or so telescopes trained on it well before dark. And those of us who do any serious lunar observing may already be consulting a single particular book which is kept on a desk in the observatory. Care to guess which book that is? "Yo, who's got the Hatfield's?".
The Hatfield Atlas is our 'official' lunar reference. Other references have been left out for the membership to browse and sample. Two of them drew favorable comments about their indices and cross references (and which are explicit advantages over Hatfield's). But as expected, we always go back to the Hatfield Atlas, and there are reasons. Plain and simple, you won't find better or more accurate renderings anywhere. If you want an exact reference, or if you need to match detail and gradations with what you see in the eyepiece, this is the book to have.
The first time one examines a reference of this quality, there is generally some astonishment at the high level of detail involved. My first inclination was to 'read' it from cover-to-cover, as one would regard a centennial issue of National Geographic. You will likely find the renderings here to be of equal or better quality and possibly more fascinating.
I highly recommend the Hatfield Atlas for both amateur and professional astronomers who have a need for the finest lunar reference available.
