This is a sticky for resources which can be used to help complete the Lunar 100. They complement the other sticky to Doc's fabulous descriptions from his observations.
Additional links or material will be added when they are found.
The following links provide useful material:
http://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/the-lunar-100/ - The original April 2004 article by Charles Wood, which started the whole thing off!
http://www.astrospider.com/Lunar100list.htm - Useful list with images for most targets, co-ordinates and brief description
http://www.salzgeber.at/astro/moon/L100.html - Another table with descriptions and also links to high quality images
http://www.shoestringastronomy.com/lunar/lunar100.htm - This link has some useful annotated sketches in the links, not for all targets but quote a few.
The OTL100.pdf attachment contains some useful info about when is the best phase to observe each target. I've tested some of these and they may be a day out, so use it as a guide rather than absolute fact!

A beautiful sight greeted me as I walked through the door on the way to work this morning. The Moon was fairly low and illuminated by earthshine. I considered grabbing my 'scope and camera, but didn't have enough time. I wonder how long I'll have to wait before I get another chance at that shot and so can tick L2 off on my Lunar 100 spreadsheet!
My GF is the head at a primary school in Lancashire. The school runs various after school clubs/events, such as the MAKE IT club. Some pupils and teachers have expressed an interest in an Astronomy club.
The question is are there any resources/grants etc. available for primary schools to call on in the Lancashire area.
She is interested in ideas and resources to support this club. Obviously I have offered myself but I think she is looking for something a bit more formal than a bloke with a scope or 2.
Any suggestions welcome.
Thanks in advance...
