Message from Sky & Telescope

Hello!

Welcome to the new Sky & Telescope web store. We’ve been offline since August but are thrilled to be back up and running.

Transitioning our web infrastructure from the previous owner proved to be much harder and more complicated than we imagined. We apologize to each and every one of you for this delay, but we took our time to make sure everything would work correctly so that your browsing and purchasing experience is as easy as possible. We may not be Amazon, but our goal is to bring you unique products as easily and quickly as possible. We view ourselves as part of the community we serve, so getting things right is important.

As you know, the Sky & Telescope team works hard to bring interesting, valuable, and fun products to you, our community of astronomy enthusiasts. In the coming months we will roll out some new items as we get them developed and produced (like the eagerly anticipated eclipse-track Earth globe — it’s awesome!). If you have ideas about other items you might like us to produce or carry, let us know. Although we can’t promise to do everything, we’ll carefully review any ideas we receive.

Thanks for your ongoing support of Sky & Telescope!

Jumbo Pocket Sky Atlas

By Roger Sinnott

Format: Hardcover

SKU# S6969

Get more of a great thing!

We wanted a clear and detailed atlas that was easy to consult at the telescope by red flashlight. So, starting with our famous Pocket Sky Atlas, we enlarged all its 80 charts by 25% and added six more close-up regions (for a total of 10): the Sagittarius Milky Way, the tail of Scorpius, the Big Dipper’s Bowl, the surroundings of Deneb, the Cone and Rosette Nebulae area, and Leo’s galaxy-rich tail. The result is Pocket Sky Atlas – Jumbo Edition.

There has never been such a wonderfully detailed atlas that’s so handy to take on trips and also easy to read at the telescope — thanks to its still user-friendly size, convenient spiral-bound design, and easy-to-read labels. With more room for your own pencil notes and additions as well.

A superb atlas! An indispensable handbook of the night sky! Review by Steven
Rating

This really is a superb sky atlas! Extremely detailed and accurate charts, and very beautifully done. At the sale price it’s a fantastic deal. I had been relying on Sky Portal to locate bright, near-objects but this will make it so much easier to navigate when we pull out the big reflectors for deep-sky, as these charts are vastly more detailed! I also really love the sizes of the individual charts and prefer these smaller, detailed segments over the larger ones. This will certainly be my go-to atlas, and it will travel with me everywhere!

I’m nearly in agreement with one other reviewer who suggested this atlas was maybe too nice to use out in the field! I would really love a version of this with heavily laminated pages. Even if it doubled the price I think it would be worth it!

Very nice Atlas Review by Robert
Rating

I think this Atlas is going to stay inside the house, Its just too nice to use outside in the field, This Atlas has detailed pages of the night sky that's enlarged to show more detail of the deep sky objects, along with close up details of M-45 and M-42 etc.., Nicely done, I would recommend this Atlas HIGHLY!! And its a GOOD VALUE for the $$

The Pocket Sky Atlas super-sized is AWESOME ! Review by Richard

I own the original "Pocket Sky Atlas" and it was the first thing I grab when planning my night observing or out in the night sky. I like it but when I saw that S&T had "super-sized" it I just had to get it.
And I am VERY IMPRESSED with how much easier it is to read and located deep sky objects, both inside as well as outside.
It is well made and has all the features of its smaller sibling (or is that its parent?). So if you are a little "sight-challenged" like me, then this is what I would highly recommend !
