Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky & Telescope) are working remotely from their homes to support the social distancing efforts to contain COVID 19. While we are all working to support the S&T community, there may be delays in responding during this time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Camillia Taylor at [email protected].

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. Aero provides fulfillment services for P&G. While they will continue to fulfill our orders, there may be a delay in shipping our products because they must give priority to medical, personal healthcare, and cleaning and sanitization products.

Planisphere, 40 Degrees North

By The Editors of Sky & Telescope

Format: Chart

SKU# S3249

Sky & Telescope's planisphere replots our iconic monthly star chart for use any time of the year. Along with our iconic constellation figures, we also include accurately marked star brightnesses and famous deep-sky objects. All planispheres suffer from distortion, especially toward the south, so we've included a second chart on the back that offers a less-distorted view of the southern sky. The full-color Star Wheel is easy to read in daylight or at night under a red flashlight. It even accommodates daylight-savings time.

This product is available at 30 degrees South, 30 degrees North, and 50 degrees North.

What Sky & Telescope's Camille Carlisle has to say:

"Our star wheel (also called a planisphere) is a great grab-and-go tool for exploring the night sky. It also makes a great gift for kids just getting interested in astronomy. (Just make sure to get the one for the correct latitude — don't give the 40 degrees north one to someone in the Southern Hemisphere!)"
