From the PublisherReview:
Other features of The Night Sky were designed with observers in mind:
--Dark stars on a white background make the map easier to read at night with a dim (or preferably red filtered) flashlight. (Under red light the dark blue of the chart becomes a velvety black.)
--The maps are computer-plotted for accuracy and show stars down to a consistent brightness cut-off. What you see on the chart is what is really there.
--The constellation figures emphasize simple patterns connecting the brightest stars, making the constellations easy to recognize and remember.
--The pocket version has fewer stars and omits some of the less conspicuous constellations to minimize clutter and maintain readability.
--The Night Sky comes in a protective vinyl pouch and the chart has plastic outer surfaces for dew resistance.
