Product Description

A practical guide to binocular and small telescope observing.

Night Sky Atlas combines clear, accurate star maps with reliable and informative text. This is a highly practical atlas for beginning sky gazers using binoculars or a small telescope.

Its format and features provide for years of use:

  • Sturdy binding makes it suitable for outdoor use
  • Cover flaps can be used as page-markers
  • The sewn binding allows the atlas to be opened flat
  • Star maps are drawn with black stars on a white background, making space for penciled-in observations
  • The high-quality paper can withstand repeated use of an eraser

The book begins by presenting the whole sky in a series of six maps, showing stars down to magnitude 5.5--all visible with binoculars or a small telescope. Opposite each map is a photorealistic image that shows how the same portion of sky looks to the naked eye, allowing less-experienced observers to quickly find specific objects of interest.

The maps can be used for planning observations, navigating from one part of the sky to another and for a quick reference guide.

Other features include:

  • 40 large-scale constellation charts
  • A full set of seasonal charts
  • Maps of the Moon and the planets
  • Deep sky maps identifying double stars, nebula and more
  • A comprehensive index

Night Sky Atlas is the ideal portable reference for backyard astronomers.
