There are also other lunar atlases but maybe not as detailed:
  • The Clementine Atlas of the Moon by Ben Bussey and Paul D. Spudis (2004) $100.00 (!)
  • Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Near Side of the Moon by Charles J. Byrne (2005) $54

An update from the author acknowledged that the book will be available from November 2007 onwards! A must have for the moon aficionado

A good source for lunar images as a backup to published atlases is the daily posting of a digital image via amateur telescopes to Lunar Photo of the Day.
