This is identical to the Pocket Sky Atlas but in a larger format. This format has hard covers and is easier to read at night with a red flashlight. 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
