Pocket Sky Atlas 59317

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.
Product Information
  • 110 Pages
  • 6 by 9 inches

What Sky & Telescope's Alan MacRoberts, has to say:
"Everyone who observes with a telescope or binoculars needs good sky charts. This handy item is the ideal starter atlas, with 30,000 stars to as faint as magnitude 7.6 (about the limit for binoculars or a good finderscope), 1,500 galaxies, clusters and nebulae hiding among them (colored by type), and much else. Constellations are outlined with their familiar stick figures for easy orientation. Low cost; an absolute must-have for every astronomer."
