For me the best sky atlas for backyard astronomers,it has 80 detailed charts with the most interesting targets to observ,classified by right ascension and dates and hours to better observation,has charts of both sky hemispheres and is also excelent for star hopping with the added value that is a relatively small pocket book. At the end of the book have close up charts of the Pleiades,Orions Sword,Virgo Galaxy Cluster and Large Magellanic Cloud
A imprescindible tool book

If you are planning to become a casual night sky watcher this book is a must. But if you are a regular stargazer you must have this little book too. A piece of artwork by itself, there is no much reading in it but there is a lot to look at. Incredibly useful star charts! Easy to use at night or during the day to prepare the observations. It does not matter if you live in the southern or the northern hemisphere, this book will serve you well. Unless you have a relatively large telescope, anything ...more

A perfect "observatory bag" companion to the excellent Sky Atlas 2000.0, 2nd Field Laminated Version, which is my go-to source for sky data. Sometimes, however, the Sky Atlas 2000.0 is too big to cart about - it's much better on the chart table than standing at the Dobsonian trying to starhop. That's where this little pocket atlas comes in handy!

This is a small reference for astronomy lovers, in a handy size able to fit into a large pocket. It covers all stars down to 7.6 magnitude, which means it's great for small telescopes and binoculars, but readers will find it much more useful after learning the constellations. The book is divided into many sections, each of which is considerably smaller than the night sky.
