The Face of the Moon

Enlarged image

Section 23 of the map shows the southern lunar highlands, one of the most difficult areas of the moon to map in detail. The illustration represents a small fraction of this section, with the crater Clavius at top (identified by the number 8), Maginus at left center (7), and Tycho at bottom right (1). This detail can be compared with a corresponding detail from the Lohrmann map (see item 23), as well as with Schmidt's earlier chromolithograph (see item 17)
