Pocket Sky Atlas, A Must-Have

on 1/8/2007

The S&T, Pocket Sky Atlas, is, without a doubt, the best of the best. This easy to use atlas is spiral bound for easy holding as the pages fold back flat. It's not just the Northern Hemisphere, it's the Southern, as well. For star hopping and rich field telescope or binocular use, this little manual is indispensable. Well thought out charts with each page being a section of the night sky organized by the seasons of the year. Little cross reference markers on the margins and top and bottom of each page lets you know what page the next portion of the sky continues on, just like a road atlas gazetteer does. It will be the best astronomic accessory, for under $20, you will have in your inventory!

Product Overview

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.
