The standard against which all other star atlases are measured.

What Sky & Telescope's S. N. Johnson-Roehr has to say:
"There's a reason this atlas is so heavy--it's a heavy-duty observing tool. It goes deep enough (magnitude 8.5) to guide me through a session of telescopic observing. Its laminated pages are good for use on those dew-heavy evenings/mornings, plus robust enough to take as many wax pencil markings as I need to make to plan or record my observing sessions."
