Pocket Sky Atlas book

741 views

Looks good full index of constellations, objects by type and the charts are very detailed. Charts are organised in 8 ascention sections each by when visible in the evening, midnight and morning so all in all very logically set out.

Has a telrad finder symbol for star hopping which is a nice touch

Was hoping it would contain what to view guides etc but there is no such info but can get this elsewhere to plan observing sessions

Hope the pictures are useful as I never came across any when researching which sky atlas/guide to buy

This is a great little star atlas, easy to carry around and the spiral binding means it can be folded right over which is very useful.  The pages are very good quality paper so it's quite robust.  If I'm going to take a star atlas to the telescope with me, this is my first port of call.  It also fits nicely it the bottom of my eyepiece bag :smile:.
