Feature highlights
Multiple Map Options: The only lunar software product that provides a variety of map options for unparalleled flexibility. All maps flip and reverse to match your telescope view and are fully corrected for libration. Choose the ultra-high resolution texture (image) map for realism. Choose the vector (outline) map for special applications such as sketching. Combine map formats to identify difficult to see features. Choose from any of 3 interactive geology maps to study lunar geological history.

Ultra-High Resolution Texture (Image) Map: RITI's state-of-the-art proprietary reprocessing techniques have made it possible for us to develop a 360° map that resolves features smaller than 1 mile in diameter, and establishes a new industry standard in texture map resolution.

Field-of-View: Create custom maps that match the actual views through your own telescope and eyepieces. Stores data on focal length and FOV for multiple telescopes and eyepieces.

Surveyor Tool: Built on an advanced GIS engine, this tool lets you accurately measure lunar distances and the size of lunar features. Our exclusive multi-point measuring capability lets you measure irregular features such as mountain ranges, dorsa, and rilles.

Phase Manager: View real-time phases for any time and date between 1970 AD and 2100 AD.

Ephemeris: Our detailed Ephemeris provides a wealth of useful information. Find lunation age to the nearest minute, colongitude, angular diameter, Illumination %, RA, Dec. and much more. Rise, Transit, and Set Times are now shown in event order for more user-friendly operation.

Resource Viewer: Connects you to dozens of informative lunar websites via the Internet. Also contains Apollo Video Clips, and stores user generated animations.

Link/Print/Export: Link your own astrophotos and observing notes to features. Save map images as JPEGs, paste them to other documents, or email them to others.
