"Fotografischer Mondatlas" is a lunar atlas authored by Alan Chu, Wolfgang Paech, and Mario Weigand. This highly skilled international team has been making most of the advancement of the digital imaging techniques and has taken photos that used to be unimaginable a decade ago.

The 192-page book includes 388 high-resolution photos that cover 69 regions of the Moon surface. The pictures with different lighting conditions make the beauty of lunar landscape tangible to the readers. Roughly 90% of the pictures were captured with DMK 31AU03.AS astronomy cameras.
