Organized to make it easy for astronomers to use, enabling ground-based images and views to be compared with the Orbiter photographs.

From the Back Cover:

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 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 almost all the artifacts and imperfections to provide a comprehensive and beautifully detailed set of images of 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 Orbiter photographs.  The photographs are striking for their consistent Sun angles (for uniform appearance).  All features are identified with their current IAU-approved names, and each photograph is located in terms of latitude and longitude.  To help practical astronomers, all the photographs are systematically related to an Earth-based view.

 

Review:

From the reviews:

Choice Outstanding Title! (January 2006)

"With plans to return astronauts to the Moon, our nearest planetary body is of obvious interest at the moment. ... The book has been organised to make it easy for astronomers to use ... . the quality of reproduction in this volume is excellent and readers will undoubtedly spend endless hours vicariously exploring the lunar surface. " (International Space Review, 2006)
