About Uranometria 2000.0 Deep Sky Atlas
Over 30,000 non-stellar objects, more than three times the number of any other atlas.
280,035 stars to visual 9.75 magnitude which is about what you will see in a 50mm finder scope. Stars are continuously tapered to create a more realistic perspective.
220 double page, (18 x 12 inches) charts at a scale of 1.85 cm per degree of declination.
In 29 areas of heavy congestion, close-up charts are provided at 2 or 3 times normal scale with a stellar limiting magnitude approximating 11.
Objects are indexed by Common Names, Star Names, Bayer Stars, Messier Objects, and NGC/IC Objects in the All Sky Edition. Know the name but not the position? No problem, these indexes make it a snap to find.
