This star atlas is devoted to observing the Herschel objects with binoculars and telescopes. It displays over 2500 of the most visually-attractive star clusters, nebulae and galaxies that were discovered by Sir William, Caroline and Sir John Herschel from the end of the 18th century to the mid-19th.
Covering the entire sky from the North to the South Celestial Pole, and showing all 88 constellations, it is also a general sky atlas showing variable, double and multiple stars, and the Milky Way.
Spiral bound and printed in red-light friendly colors for use at a telescope, with color-coded symbols for easy recognition and identification, this is an all-purpose observing reference for all amateur observers.
'The maps by Wil Tirion are as beautiful as we have come to expect from the premier star map producer of our time ... you will delight in this book and in the maps it includes.' The Astronomical League
