Perfect for beginners and experienced stargazers alike, Sky & Telescope’s Pocket Sky Atlas is your go-to celestial reference!
Sky & Telescope’s celestial atlases are the standard by which all other star atlases have been judged for more than half a century. Our Pocket Sky Atlas is no exception. This wonderfully detailed atlas is particularly handy to take on trips and use at the telescope, thanks to its compact size, convenient wire-bound design, and easy-to-read labels. To help you find your way, the charts show both constellation boundaries and stick figures.
By popular request, two special new lists are included in this second edition. One is a table of the atlas’s 53 stars of unusual reddish hue (also known as carbon stars), and the charts where they are found. The other is a list of 24 nearby stars, with their distances in light-years and the charts showing their locations. All can easily be spotted in small telescopes.
