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!

Sky Atlas 2000.0 Field Laminated

By Wil Tirion & Roger W. Sinnott

Format: Spiral Bound

SKU# 46921

The standard against which all other star atlases are measured. Each edition of Sky Atlas 2000.0 contains 26 large charts covering the whole sky, showing 81,312 single, multiple, and variable stars down to magnitude 8.5 and 2,700 of the best deep-sky objects scattered among them. Includes closeup charts of special areas such as the celestial poles and the Virgo-Coma galaxy region. This is the next step up from our Pocket Sky Atlas -- and a must for every serious telescope user!
    Field Edition Laminated:
  • Stars and deep-sky objects are white on a black background
  • 18 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches
  • Spiral bound along the top
  • Plastic laminated

What Sky & Telescope's S. N. Johnson-Roehr has to say:
"There's a reason this atlas is so heavy--it's a heavy-duty observing tool. It goes deep enough (magnitude 8.5) to guide me through a session of telescopic observing. Its laminated pages are good for use on those dew-heavy evenings/mornings, plus robust enough to take as many wax pencil markings as I need to make to plan or record my observing sessions."
