About the Authors
  • This classic star atlas is ideal for both beginning astronomers and more experienced observers worldwide. The clear, full-color maps show stars, clusters and galaxies visible with binoculars or a small telescope. The atlas also features constellation boundaries and the Milky Way, and lists objects that are interesting to observe. This new edition features a clearer map of the Moon's surface, showing craters and features; a second Moon map, mirror reversed for users of telescopes with star diagonals; enhanced index charts showing the constellations more clearly; and a new data table listing stars hosting planetary systems. It is now spiral bound, making it ideal for use at the telescope.

    "Every backyard astronomer needs a sixth-magnitude star atlas. Many subtle improvements have elevated this atlas to must-have status. Tirion is the practical star-atlas master ... Unqualified highest rating: a full five out of five stars"- Terence Dickinson, SkyNews magazine

    "an excellent expansion of his previous works...this new edition will be useful to the amateur stargazer. An easy-to-use, readable resource for students and amateurs. Highly recommended." - CHOICE

    A couple of mistakes: 1. Messier chart b names objects M42 and M43 as M43 and M44. Another M44 object is shown on the left-hand side in Cancer. 2. Page -2, the page with information about this book, has a wrong URL. Information on this title: www.cambridge/9780521173636. The URL misses the .org suffix.
