Consolidated lunar atlas : supplement numbers 3 and 4 to the USAF Photographic lunar atlas( Book )

5 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1960 a selection of the best available lunar photography was published in the Photographic Lunar Atlas (Kuiper, Arthur, Moore, Tapscott, Whitaker, Univ. of Chicago Press, 1960). The reproductions were halftones. In spite of the care and supervision given this publication, some detail, especially of a photometric nature, was lost although the resolution was not appreciably impaired. Since 1960 several lunar programs have endeavored to obtain improved photographic coverage. The present Consolidated Lunar Atlas combines Supplements Nos. 3 and 4, thus completing the series announced in the 1960 Atlas. Special emphasis is placed here on types of information where current earth-based photography still excels: (a) low-oblique photography, which brings out low domes, lava beds, and other structures of considerable horizontal dimension, but of low vertical relief; and (b) full-moon photography, which presents photometric information totally unavailable from even high- resolution records taken with 20 degrees or 30 degrees sun angles
Research directed toward a photo-telescopic selenodetic measuring program( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report summarizes work done in the following areas: (1) Use selenodetic measures of star-trailed lunar photographs in a reduction with best available values of I and F to provide three-dimensional adjusted coordinates of not less than 45 lunar control points measured on 20 lunar photographic plates. (2) Continue the cartographic position program and provide measures of about 1000 control points on each of six additional selenodetic photographs. (3) Perform the necessary scientific work required to place the telescope in high performance condition for selenodetic research. The mirror was Kanogen coated, aluminized, and optical figuring completed
