About the Authors
  • Using the latest methods in digital photography and image processing, The Cambridge Photographic Star Atlas presents the whole sky through large-scale photographic images with corresponding charts. Each double-page spread shows a section of the night sky and is accompanied by an inverted chart highlighting and naming double stars, variable stars, open clusters, galactic and planetary nebulae, globular clusters, and galaxies. The 82 large-scale charts, with a scale of 1° per cm, identify over 1500 deep-sky objects and 2500 stars. Providing a giant mosaic of the entire sky, this unique atlas is unparalleled in detail and completeness, making it indispensable for visual observers and astrophotographers.

    • The first star atlas printed from digital sky imagery
    • Compiled from 3000 images, it gives a mosaic of the whole night sky in all its splendour
    • Each double-page spread features a photographic section of the sky and an inverted chart highlighting over 1500 deep-sky objects and 2500 stars
