Thomas Harriot's Moon Drawings

In 1609 and 1610, Thomas Harriot made a number of drawings of his telescopic observations of the Moon. In addition he also drew "Moon Maps" of what he believed the surface geography of the Moon to be.

Note: All dates for Harriot's observations are on the Julian calendar. Add ten days to convert them to the Gregorian calendar.
