about

Our celestial atlases are the standard by which all others have been judged for a half century. Now we?ve raised the bar with our new Pocket Sky Atlas! There has never been such a wonderfully detailed atlas so handy to take on trips and use at the telescope, thanks to its compact size, convenient spiral-bound design, and easy-to read labels. The 80 charts contain more than 30,000 stars to magnitude 7.6 and some 1,500 deep-sky objects (including 675 galaxies to magnitude 11.5). The best double stars are named, and three dozen red (carbon) stars are marked. The charts show constellation boundaries and stick figures to help you find your way. In the back are close-up charts of the Orion Nebula region, Pleiades, Virgo Galaxy Cluster, and Large Magellanic Cloud. Available in February 2006. 110 pages, 6 by 9 inches, spiral bound, softcover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best! I can't get over how useful this atlas really is. Even with a GOTO telescope I still use it for my observing sessions. Our club members bought 25 of them last year. This led me to develop a monthly "Pocket Sky Atlas Challenge" for users. You can find the Pocket Sky Atlas Challenges, starting with September, here: http://john-kulczycki.suite101.com/pocket-sky-atlas-challenges-for-september-a386634 http://john-kulczycki.suite101.com/pocket-sky-atlas-challenges-for-october-a387789 http://john-kulczycki.suite101.com/pocket-sky-atlas-challenges-for-november-a394772 I now have two, one for the observatory and one next to my computer. Well done Sky and Telescope.
