About the Authors
  • The interstellarum Deep Sky Atlas set a new high standard for modern celestial cartography. The same team now presents the interstellarum Deep Sky Guide, its unique observing companion. Taking an intuitive visual approach, for each spread of the Atlas, the Guide focuses on carefully selected objects, either as colored composite POSS plates or through the authors' own eyepiece sketches. They allow you to estimate the visibility of features in the telescope while planning observations. Stars and other objects in the vicinity are highlighted, so they also serve as finder charts at night. An index map on each spread allows you to quickly find each object's location in the Atlas. The interstellarum Deep Sky Guide takes all the hassle out of preparing for observing sessions - there's no need to print star charts or photos. Simply grab your Atlas and your Guide, and go observe!

    • Around 2,500 deep-sky objects are shown, with catalog number, object type, constellation, nickname, short descriptions, and observational hints, for example filter and magnification recommendations
    • Features more than 1,000 color finder charts, using red and blue channels of Palomar Observatory Sky Survey II plates
    • Hundreds of detailed pencil drawings made by the authors provide the best approximation of what may be seen visually
    • Page numbers are identical to the charts in the interstellarum Deep Sky Atlas for easy and quick navigation
