'Using data from both the Tycho and Hipparcos Catalogues, 81, 312 stars down to magnitude 8.5 are now plotted on 26 charts. This is nearly double the number of the previous version ... The Deluxe Version is spiral-bound and unlaminated. The Field and Desk Versions are available in less expensive unlaminated and unbound format, i.e. loose sheets, or more expensive laminated and spiralbound format ... Sky Atlas 2000.0 is an excellent atlas at a very reasonable price, and is suitable for both beginners and experienced observers.' Gordon Nason, Astronomy and Space
'It is a splendid mid-range atlas.' Ian Genner, Webb Society Quarterly Journal
'... an excellent new edition with changes which are all improvements. Thoroughly recommended for amateurs and I suspect that many professionals will also find it useful.' Cliff Turk, Monthly Notices of the Astronomical Society of South Africa
