Beautiful Moon map
Last week I got a great new map of the Moon, Sky & Telescope's "Field Map of the Moon".

Antonin Rukl made this beautiful map. It is completely laminated so it can be used indoors as well as outdoors, while observing the Moon. It can be folded in several ways, so you can view the whole map, two neighbouring pair of quadrants or just a single quadrant. The images below should give you an idea. On the backside of the map you find an index of almost 1000 features that are labelled on the map. The libration zones are depicted in neutral grey. I can recommend this map to every lunar observer!
