Overview

Wil Tirion, the renowned astronomical cartographer, has produced this atlas of the sky with the beginner in mind. Each chart shows all the stars visible to the naked eye over a wide area of sky, together with the brighter nebulae and galaxies. Constellation boundaries and the Milky Way are also shown. Color codes enable the user to distinguish easily the various kinds of objects shown. The charts are complemented by tables of objects, such as different sorts of stars, nebulae, and galaxies, for which one can search. Each table is placed opposite the corresponding chart to facilitate use. The charts are in full color, making them both attractive and simple to use. The result is a self-contained star atlas that will delight and inform newcomers to practical astronomy.
