Night Sky Atlas - The essential skywatching guide, complete with detailed maps, stunning photography, and see-through overlay pages.
Spectacular space photography, see-through pages, and state-of-the-art maps and charts combine to take you on an unforgettable tour of the night sky.
Find out how to pinpoint starts and constellations wherever you are in the world.
An ideal resource for stargazers throughout the world.
This is an excellent reference book for young astronomers-in-training, as it has clear diagrams, plenty of useful knowledge and ways to identify stars and constellations, and is full of keys and info-boxes that fill in important details for each section of the sky.
It even starts off with a comprehensive "How to use this Atlas" section which explains how to interpret the pages' information.
I was most impressed with the transparent overlay pages, containing the outlines of constellations and their component stars. It made it a lot easier to spot them in the night sky.
Having dabbled in Astronomy at an early age, and still carrying more than a hint of interest in that area, I found this book to be a wonderful re-introduction to the glorious stellar field that surrounds us.
Overall, most impressed. The price would put it into the 'semi-serious reader/hobbyist' range, but for those dedicated to the sciences, it is a very reasonable price to pay for such a valuable publication. Another winner.
