About this title

Synopsis:

The ultimate guide for stargazing, anywhere in the world

The scope of The New Atlas of the Stars is remarkably comprehensive. Astronomy buffs and skywatchers will find this abundantly illustrated reference book useful anywhere in the world.

Star charts depict the night sky, and this atlas is arranged so that one section of the sky is shown and described on each double-page spread. The two polar regions have their own individual pages. There are 30 charts covering the whole sky, and each chart has a plastic overlay depicting the names of the important stars.

The first section of the book is a general overview of astronomy and includes:

  • Stars and constellations
  • Historical star charts
  • The motion of the heavens
  • Star trails
  • The Milky Way

The other three sections feature galaxies and constellations found in the Northern Hemisphere, Equatorial Region and Southern Hemisphere.

The final section covers the basics of astrophotography and digital imaging as well as practical and useful viewing tips.

The New Atlas of the Stars is the ultimate reference for the astronomer.
