Présentation de l'éditeur
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. In e-book form, the Pocket Sky Atlas is even more compact than the glove-compartment-size print version, ready to come with you whenever you observe.
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
