About this book

A large, highly detailed wall chart showing the stars and deep sky objects in three superb maps - the northern and southern hemispheres and the equatorial region. All stars visible to the naked eye are shown, as well as more than 200 deep sky targets, including all those listed in the famous Messier Catalogue. The deep sky objects - which include galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and double stars - are labelled in gold-coloured ink, so that they stand out from the background stars. The maps are accompanied by an informative text that explains how to use the maps from anywhere on Earth at any time of year. Lists of galaxies, nebulae, planetary nebulae, double and multiple stars, open and globular clusters, and asterisms will provide inspiration for many years of enjoyable deep sky observing.
