The Hatfield SCT Lunar Atlas
Photographic Atlas for Meade, Celestron and other SCT Telescopes
Schmitt-Cassegrain Telescopes (SCT) and Schmitt-Maksutov telescopes – which include the best-selling models from Meade, Celestron, and other important manufacturers – reverse the visual image left for right, giving a "mirror image". This makes it extremely difficult for observers to identify lunar features at the eyepiece of one of these instruments, using conventional atlases which show the Moon "upside-down" with south at the top. The human brain just doesn’t cope well with trying to compare the real thing with a map that is a mirror-image of it!
The Hatfield SCT Lunar Atlas solves the problem. Photographs and the detailed key maps are exactly as the Moon appears through the eyepiece of an SCT or Maksutov telescope. Smaller IAU-standard reference photographs are included on each page, to make it simple to compare the mirrored SCT photographs and maps with those that appear in other conventional atlases.
Every owner of an SCT – and that’s most amateur astronomers – will want this!
