9780933346338: Sky Atlas 2000.0 Deluxe

Sky Atlas 2000.0 in its second edition offers nearly 90,000 stars, with all positions derived from the Hipparcos database, the most accurate survey ever undertaken. In this Field Version, the 29 charts show stars and deep-sky objects in white on a black background. The map area is 460 x 330 mm (18 by 13 inches). The charts are printed on heavy paper with a rigid clear plastic, and for ease of use they are unbound and boxed. In this format the Atlas will be indispensable as an aid to telescope users who prefer maps which come as close as possible to the view through the telescope. The lamination allows felt tip or wax markers to be used.

Book Description:

In this Laminated Field Version, the 29 charts show stars and deep-sky objects in white on a black background. The map area is 460 x 330 mm (18 by 13 inches). The charts are unbound and boxed and felt tip or wax markers can be used without damaging the maps.

Review:

'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
