The Cambridge Star Atlas Hardcover


Condition: Almost new with small tear on top of dust cover.

The Cambridge Star Atlas is a general atlas of the sky for beginners, and also for more advanced observers. The 20 charts are in full colour, making them attractive and easy to use. With maps that can be used world wide and all through the year this book is a must for any keen astronomer.

This classic star atlas is ideal for both beginning astronomers and more experienced observers worldwide. The clear, full-color maps show stars, clusters and galaxies visible with binoculars or a small telescope. The atlas also features constellation boundaries and the Milky Way, and lists objects that are interesting to observe. This new edition features a clearer map of the Moon’s surface, showing craters and features; a second Moon map, mirror reversed for users of telescopes with star diagonals; enhanced index charts showing the constellations more clearly; and a new data table listing stars hosting planetary systems. It is now spiral bound, making it ideal for use at the telescope.
