Norman, since this thread has moved on to catalogs etc.If you’ve got a laptop the absolute best(IMHO) luna atlas is the "Virtual Moon Atlas" FREEly available on line (though the Pro version is a huge download).When using a web cam on the moon it’s great to be able to show VMA and the webcam image side by side. With the small field of view of a webcam it is otherwise quite easy to get lost and end up snapping somthing entirly diferent to your target! I find the Expert Version entirly adequate for the purpose.Yes I know, I should learn my way round the moon a bit better, but with "Maturity" also comes a certain fuzzyness of the brain.Roy.
