Noted! ;) ;) The ACT-REACT Quick Map is a great resource. You can lose hours over there. Might get around to updating it at the weekend.

This is somewhere near Apollo 12 on the My Moon Zoo moon map . I wanted to look at the above image in Quick Map . I followed the directions that JJ gave me to get started in quick map which is still posted on page 42 of this thread, and I cannot get the Quick Map to go to these co-ordinates following the instructions given , and when I tried to go there Manually the closest I can get is -2.1486 latitude and 179.8138 longitude . The area I was in last time I logged on was near Apollo 17 Latitude 20+ and Longitude 30+ . I am not complaining about the change I will go where ever I am put . I am explaining so you know what is happening and it seems to me that Quick Map is not working or I am Doing some thing wrong , I am wondering if you could try the co-ordinates and if you get it to work them I have to look at what I am doing wrong . thank you for your time and help.In anticipation .

Hi Ian

Try this - in Quick Map position your mouse to coordinates - Latitude = -2.15  Longitude = -23.4 and double-click. Then position your mouse to the same coordinates and double-click again and eventually you'll get to your image. (longitude -23.4 is calculated from 360 - 336.4)
