Astronomy introduces a magazine-style star atlas. This special 100-page issue will help you navigate the starry sky!
The twenty-four 2-page, full-color star charts display all the constellations, more than 5,000 stars, and more than 1,000 deep-sky objects (star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies). Each chart has a 2-page introduction that points observers to the best objects. We also include a list of the finest double stars for each chart. And that's not all.
You will find lots of related information, from lists of Messier and Caldwell objects - the brightest celestial targets - to getting the most out of a star party. Finally, we've added more than 100 of the best deep-sky objects. You won't find a better deal in all the universe!
Atlas of the Stars will be treasured by beginning amateur astronomers and also used by those with more experience who just want a quick reference. Even better, this special issue will last a lifetime!
