Maybe this will help, photos by area, at the bottom of each page (but the maps looks cool too):

(the whole map) http://library.mcmas...w1/ndx5to40.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://library.mcmas...w1/ndx5to40.htm

(one sector, for example) http://lt1.mcmaster....mp.php?grid=51b" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://lt1.mcmaster....mp.php?grid=51b
