Paul73 Posted March 23, 2016 Share Posted March 23, 2016 (edited) Hi Guys This landed on my doorstep this morning: Finally I have found an atlas that provides a decent level of detail and that clearly shows what might actually be visible through a telescope!! It isn't cheap. But when we spend a couple of hundred pounds on an eyepiec. The £40 - £50 ish that this will set you back seems ludicrously good value. The maps are clear and detailed with different shadings for objects visible in 4", 8" and 12" scopes. It has NGC/Messier and common names on the maps as well. With suitable dew protection and a table, I'll be using this outside. I still regard Uranometria (all 3 volumes) as the definitive work (please correct me if there is better). But, as a blend of usability and detail, this is peerless. Again, if you have this, and a better paper based observing companion, please shout up! Appologies for the unengilsh show of enthusiasm. Hope that this post is usefull to someone. Paul Edited March 23, 2016 by Paul73 10 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
