When the evening dew sets in - as it almost always does here in the Pacific Northwest - you'll be glad to have a water resistant star chart. This chart is specially treated with a water-repellent coating that will keep it from getting soggy and damaged. We think this is a good investment that will keep you from having to buy new charts frequently.
Perfect for experienced stargazers and beginners alike, Sky & Telescope's Pocket Sky Atlas will have you exploring the heavens in no time. Sky & Telescope's celestial atlases are the standard by which all other star atlases have been judged for a half century. We raised the bar again with our Pocket Sky Atlas: the print version is the handiest detailed atlas around, easy to take on trips and use at the telescope thanks to its compact size, convenient spiral-bound design, and easy-to-read labels.
Features of this 80-chart atlas:
- More than 30,000 stars, individually sized according to their relative brightness
- 1,500 deep-sky objects color-coded by type, including 675 galaxies oriented as they are in the sky
- Constellation boundaries and stick figure outlines help you find your way.
