The Moon is a very well preserved star in its topography and therefore needs to be further studied, there are still many 'mysteries' to be revealed.
From the earliest civilizations, man used drawing as the first way of recording celestial events observed with the naked eye. Many of these early pictographic records were carved in relief and / or designed primarily on rocks and mud.

With the advancement of technology, these records have become sketches in papyri and other paper formats. With the advent of the Galileo Galilei telescope, the celestial bodies began to be drawn as seen through optical instruments. The first of these records was the lunar topography realized by Galileo himself with his 33mm lunetinha. Thus mankind learned that the moon was not smooth and perfect, that "sea" were not aquatic oceans like Earth and more.

After the invention of photography, modern techniques of recording images and videos especially the lunar mapping by space probes caused the moon to move to the 2nd plane, and so the noble art of drawing and photography was losing interest and, therefore, every time more being abandoned in amateur astronomy.

The Moon is the first telescopic target for most amateur astronomers, and no doubt some of them were impressed by what they saw through their telescope lenses. Frequently, however, these first impressions did not develop in a long-term interest. The current low level of interest in the Moon may be due to the misconception that there is nothing more important to be learned from terrestrial observations that have not yet been made by spacecraft, astronauts and large telescopes.

One of my goals has always been to encourage the resumption of the study of the lunar topography through images. Thus the careful observer gains a deeper understanding of the lunar topography, a more accurate perception of the details, and the changes of illumination and shadows that occur on the surface of the moon. In this respect, it is quite possible that we may find forms in the lunar relief that have not yet been duly registered or named (see http://astroavani.no.comunidades.net/relating-the-discovery-a-new-crafty-craft-fantasma ) and see if there are significant changes in the topography of our natural satellite through TLPs as well as the fall of a new car.

Anyway, the Moon is an "Astro extraordinary" that deserves the attention of the dedicated amateur astronomer.
