Lunar 100

Finding Messier objects is something that telescope users do quite often but this is really a winter occupation because summer skies, certainly as far north as Inverness, are so light at night. However, one object that is easily visible at night throughout the year is the Moon.

Many amateurs are able to find the most conspicuous features on the Moon but to really appreciate our nearest neighbour it would help to have a guide that identifies many of the smaller and less well-known features as well.

The Lunar 100 is a list compiled by Charles Wood writing in the Sky and Telescope magazine that attempts to provide a selection of 100 of the most interesting telescopic sights. This list will hopefully awaken interest in, and enhance the understanding of, these various lunar features.
