This popular observer's guide to the Moon by H. Percy Wilkins and Patrick Moore, first published in 1955, was widely read by amateur lunar observers in the latter half of the 20th century. Unless otherwise qualified, references to it in this Wiki are to the 1961 Second Edition.


 

Additional Information

 

Aller (H.P.Wilkins' name for Langrenus K, which is now the IAU's Atwood).

O 52 é Langrenus, Langrenus K=Aller-Atwood

Na imaxe superior, observamos ao importante Langrenus, xa inundado pola luz solar, amósanos as súas importantes beiras así como as súas protuberancias centrais, as cales, nesta imaxe, son máis notables polo contraste das súas sombras alargadas. Do trío que notamos á dereita e abaixo, o central é Aller.(Copyright 2000 Lunar and Planetary Institute / Universities Space Research Association)

Na imaxe vemos a importante cadea de cráteres Arzachel, Alphonsus e Ptolomeaus, atopándose entre Arzachel e Alphonsus Alpettagius, debaixo de Ptolomeus, Herschel. (Copyright 2000 Lunar and Planetary Institute / Universities Space Research Association).

Entre Arzachel e Alphonsus, vemos a Alpettagius, de 2900 metros, debaixo de Ptolomeus, segundo a perspectiva desde o hemisferio sur, vemos a Herschel, de 1700 metros.

 

Na imaxe, obsérvase esta cadea de cráteres tan notorios, Arzachel, Alpettagius e Alphonsus (Copyright 2000 Lunar and Planetary Institute / Universities Space Research Association).
